Motorola MC75A0-HC Healthcare Mobile Computer Features

Improve patient care and safety with the next evolution in EDA power

The MC75A0-HC takes its place as Motorola’s premier rugged EDA for healthcare, offering all the features and functionality required to take healthcare quality and patient safety to the next level in your institution.  With this easy-to-use and easy-to-carry device, your healthcare workers can access patient information, perform a triple check to verify the right medication is about to be administered to the right patient, monitor patient vital signs, place pharmacy and lab orders, access test results and more — all in just seconds, anywhere inside the healthcare facility. Add government-grade security for HIPAA compliance, a rugged design to endure daily use inside the hospital, a disinfectant-ready housing designed to withstand regular exposure to the harsh cleaning agents required to prevent the spread of germs and powerful tools for centralized management of all your mobile devices — including attached device accessories — and you have maximum value in a minimum footprint, all at the right price.

Streamline and error-proof your hospital applications with MAX Data Capture

With the MC75A0-HC in hand, your staff can electronically capture and transmit virtually any type of data from patient bedside right to your business systems. Our revolutionary scan engine delivers unparalleled performance on every 1D and 2D bar code, and is optimized for the read ranges and bar code densities common in healthcare — including those on small vials and test tubes. Omnidirectional scanning provides true point and shoot scanning simplicity — no need to align the bar code in the field of view.

First-time, every time scanning of even damaged and poor quality bar codes enhances user confidence and data capture speed. In addition, the integrated 3.2 megapixel autofocus color flash-enabled camera enables the easy capture of high-resolution photographs, video footage and documents — complete with legible fine print.

The power to support all of your point-of-care applications

With the MC75A0-HC, your clinical staff can count on consistent desktop-like performance, regardless of whether your applications incorporate high resolution video, documents and images or large databases that must be resident on the device. The MC75A0-HC offers a robust processing platform, from operating system to memory architecture, including Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.5; a PXA320 processor with 806 MHz of blazing speed; and 256 MB RAM/1GB Flash with a user accessible microSD slot to accommodate up to 32GB of additional storage. And the ability to automatically switch between portrait and landscape display modes with a flick of the wrist provides additional real-estate and easier viewing for more complex applications.

A rugged design built for life in the hospital

Motorola MAX Rugged provides Motorola’s signature rugged specifications, ensuring reliable performance despite drops, spills, wipedowns and disinfecting. With MIL-STD 810G — the latest military standards — and IEC specifications for drop, tumble and sealing, the device withstands 5 ft./1.52 m drops, 1,000 consecutive 1.6 ft./0.5 m tumbles and exposure to dust, water and more. The result is a dramatic reduction in repair requirements and downtime, providing a strong return on asset (ROA).

In addition, the ability to disinfect the MC75A0-HC frequently throughout the day helps prevent the spread of germs among patients and caregivers. The special housing can be safely sanitized with many common cleaning agents, without damaging the plastics or the sensitive electronic components.

Enable voice communications with different device types on different networks for superior collaboration

Inside the hospital, different types of workers use different types of devices. Administrators may carry Motorola’s TEAM VoWLAN phones. Physicians may carry Motorola’s small pocketable EDA, the ES400.  Nurses and lab technicians may carry the MC75A0-HC for point-of-care applications as well as mobile voice. Campus security as well as custodial and patient transport staff may carry two-way radios. And biomedical engineers and materials management personnel may carry the MC75A or MC55.

Typically, these devices cannot ‘speak’ to each other, resulting in ‘islands of voice’. But Motorola’s Integrated Voice Solutions provide instant push-totalk communications between these devices. And in the critical care setting of a hospital, the powerful and highly cost-effective one-to-one and one-to-many voice communications across workgroups ensures the lightning fast response times that save lives and improve the patient experience.

Advanced power management for full shift operation

In addition to the most powerful batteries in its class, enterprise-class accelerometer  technology injects the MC75A0-HC with the intelligence to save power whenever the device is not in use. For example, the device can automatically revert to sleep mode if movement is not detected in the period of time you specify, or if the display is placed face down on a surface. In addition, Motorola-unique wireless LAN (WLAN) features also reduce processing requirements by filtering out unnecessary system traffic, conserving power for application access.

Maximum connectivity options

Simplify life for your clinical staff and your IT department with comprehensive wireless connectivity inside the facility. Support for 802.11a/b/g enables easy integration with virtually any wireless LAN — as well as the flexibility to segment voice traffic to ensure quality of service for VoWLAN communications.  With the latest Bluetooth technology, clinical staff can connect wirelessly to a wide range of Bluetooth enabled peripherals, from headsets and printers to medical equipment. And support for IrDA enables wireless communications with a wide range of medical equipment, such as infusion pumps.

Easy HIPAA compliance with government-grade security

The Motorola MAX Secure keeps your data safe with the most advanced set of security features available in this product class. Native FIPS 140-2 Level 1 certification and support for the most advanced encryption and authentication algorithms as well as Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) provide the compliance required for government-level applications, easily meeting HIPAA regulations. And Motorola’s deep knowledge of wireless infrastructure enables the integration of FIPS and other security requirements without negatively impacting WLAN performance.

Get your applications up and running fast

In addition to the right set of features for your users and applications, the MC75A0-HC also reduces IT time and cost by enabling rapid and cost-efficient application migration and development. The industry standard platform enables easy integration into your existing technology environment. Since all Motorola mobile computers share this common platform, existing applications developed for other Motorola mobile computers can be ported to the MC75A0-HC with minimal effort. If you are deploying new applications, our robust award winning partner channel offers welltested best-in-class healthcare applications. And another Motorola tool, PocketBrowser, makes it easy for your own resources to develop applications in-house. This tool provides a familiar and easy-to-use environment that enables the easy incorporation of the wide range of advanced data capture capabilities available in the MC75A0-HC — from bar code scanning to document and signature capture.

Powerful centralized management of the MC75A0-HC — and all your other mobile devices and peripherals

A Motorola-unique toolset provides unparalleled management of your mobile devices. Motorola Mobility Services Platform (MSP) allows your IT department to remotely stage, provision, monitor and troubleshoot tens of thousands of devices in locations all around the world, all from a central location. The result is a radical reduction of one of the largest costs associated with mobility — day-to-day management. Device-level intrusion protection solutions allow the addition of extra layers of security to protect data that is resident on the device and in transit to and from the MC75A0-HC and your network. And AppCenter allows you to easily define which device features and software applications users can access, preventing unauthorized device usage that could reduce productivity.
