PRLog - March 8, 2010 - MILFORD, Iowa -- (Milford, IA) – Thinix, a leader in touchscreen user interface computer technology is pleased to introduce Thinix Touch for MCA Devices™. Mobile Clinical Assistants (MCAs) are touchscreen devices used in healthcare to deliver mobile point of care technology and data access and Thinix Touch for MCA Devices is an advanced touchscreen user interface that provides enhanced usability to promote efficient workflow.
Thinix Touch for MCA Devices™ directly addresses the problem of using a touchscreen MCA device with both an operating system that is inherently not designed for finger navigation and with applications that are not always optimized for finger operation. Thinix Touch™ leverages the power of Microsoft Windows and extends its usability immensely on the MCA hardware platform.
“Imagine navigating with only a finger, opening and closing applications, entering text, launching multiple applications and switching between them, all with just a finger in control. This is exactly what Thinix Touch™ allows users to do,” stated Don Van Oort, Thinix CTO. Thinix TouchTools™, a configurable application launcher built for touchscreen devices and which is part of Thinix Touch for MCA Devices™, provides a simple framework for hospital IT staff, third party software developers and resellers to integrate software applications into a mobile device.
“Thinix TouchTools™ allows users to control any application or the computer itself by linking a Tool, which does a task, to a Touch, which is a button you can push with your finger,” Van Oort explained. Groups Tools can be formed into Toolboxes and organized in such a way as to promote workflow efficiency improvements. Van Oort went on to say “an example of use is if a device is being used in the OB ward, then the Tools can input information such as standard post-delivery care instructions into the medical record with a touch of a button.”
In order to ensure a successful implementation of a MCA rollout, it is important to ensure that staff using the MCA devices are able to easily and efficiently use the devices. “It was clear to us at Thinix that the weak link in the standard MCA configurations is that the systems are not inherently finger-navigable,”
