The Global Care Quest system (GCQ), a mobile, wireless patient information retrieval technology that was covered here before, has received Qualcomm’s 2006 3G A-List™ Award.
GCQ was awarded the Best In Show for its mobile Integrated Clinical Information System (ICIS Mobile™), which gives physicians access to a wide range of realtime patient data over high speed wireless and mobile phone networks.
ICIS Mobile allows doctors to use their smartphones to access hospital patient data over 3G CDMA wireless networks. With the system, a physician can review his patient’s clinical notes, x-rays, CT scans, labs and even realtime feeds from bedside monitoring equipment without having to go into the hospital. Mobile access to this critical data slashes patient response times, reduces errors and improves overall quality of care.
Congratulations to the company for the recognition, and for such an innovative product! If you are still not familiar with the system, a bane of all hospital administrators that hate cell phones passionately, check out the video link above, or our archives.
