Medical computer carts can be defined as medical carts used by medical staff for several day to day activities such as checking electronic medical records, distributing drugs, charting and EMR, medication dispensing, and nursing education. These are suitable for large hospitals, health clinics, pharmacies, and psychiatric hospitals.
The global medical computer carts market has witnessed strong growth in the past few years driven by increased adoption of electronic medical record systems (EMR) in hospitals, research institutes, and diagnostic labs, etc. This high-tech system is used to collect, store, and display patient’s health statistics. Medical computer carts offer ergonomic features and workflow solutions to accommodate and reduce the laborious routine tasks associated with providing enhanced personal and patient care. The capability to move carts from room to room supplements caregivers’ highly mobile workflow. Mobile carts allow a single computer system to be used in many places in a hospital, lab, and clinic, thereby saving space and time especially in older structures whose setup does not easily accommodate costly new technology solutions.
It can lower fatigue, frustration, and stress with a medical/nurse staff’s every task at work. This enhancement of health information technology is anticipated to drive the medical computer carts market. Growing significance of fast and easy availability of critical medical equipment and supplies are the key factors that increase demand for medical computer carts in the health care sector. Lack of awareness among medical staff and high cost are the factors restraining the medical computer carts market.
