Janam Technologies LLC, a leading provider of rugged mobile computers that scan barcodes and communicate wirelessly, announced today that Los Angeles County’s Department of Health Services (DHS), the second largest health system in the nation, will deploy XG3 rugged mobile computers from Janam for inventory management and tracking of medical equipment and supplies.
With an integrated system of 19 health centers and four hospitals, DHS cares for more than 670,000 patients annually and provides a full range of primary care, specialty care, and diagnostic, impatient, emergency, trauma and rehabilitation services. Effective inventory management of DHS’ medical equipment and supplies is critical to improving quality of care for residents of Los Angeles. As part of DHS’ inventory management system, Janam’s XG3 rugged mobile computer will provide staff members with real-time visibility into the location of medical equipment, enabling them to deliver prompt and efficient care. The XG3 will also help to provide assurance that assets are safe and ready to use – ultimately improving patient safety and streamlining operational efficiencies.
"If the 19,000 staff members of Los Angeles County’s Department of Health Services are able to spend less time searching for medical equipment and more time focused on improving the patient experience, everyone wins,” said Harry B Lerner, CEO of Janam. “Our lightweight, powerful, full-shift XG3 with integrated barcode scanning is the ideal tool to help organizations like DHS achieve their goals for high-quality, patient-centered and cost-effective healthcare.”
The XG3 is Janam’s next-generation, gun-shaped rugged mobile computer. Eliminating the weight and bulk associated with competitive devices, it is the lightest industrial-grade device in its class.
With its sleek design and superior performance, the XG3 is built to increase productivity, streamline operations and improve the bottom line for healthcare and other organizations. The XG3 survives multiple six-foot drops to concrete on all sides across a full spectrum of temperatures and is sealed to IP65 standards for use in wet and dirty environments. It also delivers industry-leading battery life with a standard 5200mAh hot-swappable Li-ion battery ensuring uninterrupted operation throughout the workday.
