Improve patient safety, the patient experience and healthcare staff productivity with the fully-featured pocket-sized MC40-HC.Your patients chose you as their healthcare provider. In order to keep that patient, you need to deliver the very best in care. And delivering the best care possible requires healthcare staff to have right-now access to whatever information is required to not only take instant action – but to take the right action.

The MC40-HC gives your healthcare staff everything needed to make the right decision in a split second, all in a device that rivals the design of today’s coolest mobile devices, including smartphones. Your healthcare staff will instantly feel comfortable with the all-touch MC40-HC. With the familiar AndroidTM operating system, healthcare staff already know how to interact with the device, virtually eliminating training. It is just a little bigger than a smartphone, but still easily fits in a pocket, where it is always handy. But the similarities to consumer-style devices end there. Our Mobility Extensions (Mx) infuses Android with the enterprise-class features required in the critical environment of healthcare — robust Wi-Fi connections that keep staff connected via voice and real-time data; security features that protect data and help meet HIPAA requirements and complete remote control over devices as well as their applications. And with enterprise-class data capture, nurses and lab technicians can count on easy first time every time scanning of any bar code, ensuring accuracy in medication administration and specimen collection — where errors can have extreme consequences.

Disinfectant-ready with enterprise-class durability

You get the durability that Zebra Technologies is famous for — the MC40-HC simply works, despite drops, bumps, spills and constant sanitizing.

Advanced scanning technology

Nurses and clinical staff can count on dependable scanning of any 1D or 2D bar code displayed on a computer screen or printed on paper — even if the codes are dirty, poorly printed or damaged. Omni-directional scanning delivers point-and-shoot simplicity — there is never a need to align the device and bar code. And the extra wide best-in-class working range and field of view make barcode capture easier than ever.

A large 4.3 inch touch-only display

Provides the screen real-estate to support information-intensive apps, such as electronic health records and real-time feeds of patient vital signs.

Android fortified for the enterprise

Mx adds new features that transform Android from a consumer operating system (OS) to a true enterprise-class operating system, adding the enterprise-class security, manageability, wireless connection quality and data capture feature support your organisation requires.

A powerful voice connection to nearly any other mobile device in the hospital

With our unique integrated voice solutions, the MC40-HC is push-to-talk (PTT) ready right out of the box, easily connecting to other PTT-enabled Zebra mobile computers, two-way radios and third party popular smartphones1. And Workforce Connect Voice turns any MC40-HC into a mobile deskphone with robust PBX functionality.

User replaceable battery for guaranteed availability all shift, every shift

An average of up to 8 to 10 hours of operation on a single charge virtually eliminates downtime due to a dead battery during a shift; user-swappable batteries protect device uptime and increase device utilisation for a stronger return on investment.

Rich photographic intelligence

The high-resolution 8 MP camera enables the capture of photos that document patient condition, plus documents that are highly legible, all with the quick press of a button.
