The system makes it possible for physicians, nurses and the entire interdisciplinary team to access patient information and other EMR data in real-time at the point-of-care.

"The combination of Motorola's WLAN and bedside mobile computers with SigmaCare's EMR brings tremendous gains to both patient safety and the ability of caregivers to spend more time with their patients," said
