Advanced Technical Support Introduces Chemical-Free Disinfection Process for Tablet PCs

Advanced Technical Support, Inc. (ATS), a leader in the development of software, hardware and operational solutions, introduces ReadyDock:UV. Tested by microbiologists at Yale-New Haven Hospital, ReadyDock:UV provides chemical-free disinfection via germicidal light for the Motion® C5v Mobile Clinical Assistant (MCA).

Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are infections caused during the course of receiving medical care, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 1.7 million HAIs occur every year, with 99,000 of those infections resulting in death. With medical facilities spending an estimated $30 billion each year to treat HAIs, routine disinfection of high-touch surfaces is paramount. An industry first, ReadyDock:UV provides general purpose disinfection for 99 percent of the C5vs surface area. Additionally, ReadyDock:UV disinfects in just 105 seconds with a maximum use cycle of 20,000 disinfections per tablet.

"Medical facilities need to do everything in their power to eliminate HAIs, not only because of the costs they incur, but more importantly, to maintain a safe environment for their patients," says David Engelhardt, president of Advanced Technical Support, Inc. "We at ATS have made it our mission to create a product that provides a consistent engineering control around the tablet disinfection process, while simultaneously saving medical facilities the time, cost and manpower associated with that process."

ATS will be demonstrating ReadyDock:UV in Motions booth #4151 at the HIMSS Annual Conference & Exhibition, held Feb. 2024, 2011 in Orlando, Fla. ReadyDock:UV is manufactured, delivered and serviced through ATS and available for sale through Motions network of value-added resellers and distributors. The ReadyDock:UV is expected to be available early in March 2011.
