Steelcase Health adds Mediamounts’ fluid Wallmounted Workstation to EHR Support Arsenal

Grand Rapids, MI – November 1, 2010 – Electronic Health Records (EHR) systems hold the potential to improve patient care drastically.

A recent mandate by the federal government to invest billions of dollars in the “meaningful use” of health IT, through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) financially incents EHR early adopters and penalizes those who don’t comply by 2015.

Steelcase Health offers variety of products in it’s portfolio to help providers access patient medical records at the point of care, including Pocket — Steelcase Health’s new family of mobile workstations, designed to support the active work of healthcare professionals by accommodating both the demands of the task at hand as well as supportive technology. Pocket easily handles a wide variety of technology — lap tops, tablets, monitors, CPU’s, all-in-ones — even pen & paper.

Steelcase Health’s SYNC furniture system addresses emerging needs of caregivers by seamlessly supporting people to technology and people to people work processes in centralized and decentralized units with integrated technology support that hides, protects and keeps the workstation clear of cords.

Now, in cooperation with Mediamounts – a leading manufacturer of mounting solutions that simplify the deployment and integration of IT technology at critical points of care – Steelcase Health will offer a unique wall mounted workstation — Fluid.

Fluid was designed with the healthcare provider and patient in mind; easily accommodating the clinician’s personal needs, from sitting to standing, with effortless single-handed motion, all while continuing to uphold the highest levels of patient care.

Ideal for sharing between two patient beds, Fluid side-steps conventional wall mount designs, by allowing for an impressive 270˚ lateral movement, an extension of up to 55 inches into the room and compact storage of just seven inches from the wall, when not being used by the clinician.

Safe, configurable and sleek, the Fluid arm is intelligently designed, installs in minutes and is guaranteed for life – perfect for any healthcare environment.

“Aesthetically pleasing and ergonomically designed, Mediamounts’ Fluid engineered certified wall mount provides maximum flexibility, at strategic points of care, for busy healthcare professionals that require access to patient Electronic Health Records,” said Jan Carlson, Steelcase Health’s Vice President of Marketing and Product Development. “It’s an excellent addition to our portfolio.”
