Product Release: Honeywell Introduces New Mobile Device At HIMSS14 To Empower Healthcare Professionals

New Captuvo SL22h and SL42h Designed for Healthcare Enterprise Sleds Transform Fifth Generation Apple Devices Into Productivity Solutions for Hospital Environments

ORLANDO, Fla. – Feb. 24, 2014Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today announced the expansion of its successful Captuvo line of encasements for Apple devices at the HIMSS14 Annual Conference & Exposition in Orlando. The Captuvo SL22h (buy here from Legacy Technology Services) and Captuvo SL42h (buy here from Legacy), designed for healthcare environments, equip iPod touch (5th generation) and iPhone (5, 5c and 5s) devices with the power of barcode data collection to increase productivity and support healthcare “Converged Device” strategies.

The SL22h and SL42h sleds are lightweight and have a compact design that reduces user fatigue by offering single-handed functionality for clinical staff performing a variety of tasks, including medication administration, specimen collection and remote patient monitoring. Its purpose-built protective housing is designed to withstand multiple 4-foot drops, offers critical screen protection and provides a reliable solution for data collection in rigorous healthcare settings. And a disinfectant-ready housing allows healthcare professionals to regularly clean the device minimizing the risk of spreading infectious diseases.

“With increasing focus on reducing alarm fatigue and enhancing care team communication, healthcare organizations are turning to new technologies to improve patient safety and reduce IT spending,” said Doug Brown,  healthcare industry marketing  for Honeywell Scanning & Mobility. “The Captuvo SL22h and Captuvo SL42h merge the Apple experience with industry-leading barcode technology -- ultimately redefining the way nurses, doctors, and other clinicians interact with their EHR software and each other with one, easy-to-use device.” 

Equipped with Honeywell’s Adaptus™ 6.0 imaging technology, the Captuvo SL22h and Captuvo SL42h offer aggressive linear and 2D scanning – reducing the challenges of reading high density and poor quality barcodes often found in healthcare environments. To ensure ‘round the clock’ use, these new healthcare-ready sleds come with a hot-swappable and user replaceable battery to eliminate downtime and the need to recharge the device mid-shift.

The Captuvo Healthcare SL22h and SL42h are expected to ship in April 2014.  The SL22h and SL42h will be on display during HIMSS14 Feb. 24-27, 2014 in booth #5987 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL.
