Built to meet the demands of healthcare — and your budget
Consumer-grade tablets might appear to be a cost-effective option to improve staff efficiency, care quality and the patient experience — but the lack of healthcare features adds cost and safety concerns. The inability to disinfect devices enables the spread of germs. You’ll need to purchase scanners to capture barcodes — and more frequent replacement devices due to lack of durability. Introducing the ET40-HC and ET45-HC, offering all the enterprise healthcare features you need, all at the right price. A rugged design built to last for years — and handle constant disinfecting. An emergency alert button. Built-in first-time every time scanning. Advanced processing power and wireless connections — including 5G and Wi-Fi 6. And more. And these versatile tablets are at home everywhere — in the hands of caregivers in acute settings and patient homes, at bedside in patient rooms and in reception areas as check-in kiosks. Help your caregivers work at the top of their license with the ET4x-HC Series — the right priced rugged tablets built for healthcare.
Built for healthcare from the inside out
The advanced medical grade plastics in the housing enable frequent cleaning with some of the harshest disinfectants to help prevent the spread of germs between caregivers and patients.
Get the reliable operation that the mission critical world of healthcare demands. Drop it on the floor. Use it inside and outside, in extreme heat or subzero temperatures, out in the rain or snow — it still works.
The fully programmable red alert button can be configured to call a specific first responder, such as security or a nurse, or launch an app to follow protocols in the event of a medical emergency.
Easily view all the details in patient health records with less scrolling and edit medical reports on the large 10.1 inch bright display. And the high resolution screen makes it easy to read text and see the finest details of a photo.
These tablets are the only ones in their class to offer the fastest Wi-Fi and cellular speeds. The ET40-HC with Wi-Fi 6 is ideal for caregivers who work inside your facility, while the ET45-HC with 5G and Wi-Fi 6 keeps in-home caregivers out in the field connected. The only device in its class to offer Bluetooth 5.1, these tablets enable pinpoint locationing within an inch — ideal for staff location in the event of emergency. In addition, connections are faster, easier, interference-free and lower-power, enabling the creation of a robust ‘all-wireless’ solution that can include cordless headsets, printers and more. And create a private LTE network to enable cost-effective wireless connectivity for large campus style environments with support for Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS).1
The extra-high-capacity PowerPrecision battery keeps tablets up and running — and provides the intelligence to easily spot and discard unhealthy batteries that no longer hold a full charge.

These models are available for three years from initial sale date, ensuring that the devices you purchase today will be available tomorrow. The result? Fewer models to manage, less management time and cost. Since service is available for a guaranteed six years from the initial sale date, you can count on support every day your tablets are in use. Maximize uptime with Zebra’s exceptional support services. Zebra OneCareTM Essential or Select cover everything, including normal wear and tear and accidental damage. And options allow you to customize services to meet your specific needs.
Powerful data capture — and new communication options
Error-proof patient identification, medication administration and more with the scanning performance that has made Zebra the market leader — split-second first time capture of virtually every barcode in practically any condition.
In-home caregivers can take sharp, detailed photographs to document wound healing and more.
Enable faster issue resolution and more personalized care with video calls. For example, a telehealth video appointment provides a better experience than a phone call for both patient and physician. And a video visit is the next best thing for bed-bound at-risk patients that can’t have visitors.
Optional Push-to-Talk (PTT) Express enables instant PTT walkie-talkie style calls over your Wi-Fi network, right out of the box. Out in the field, optional Workforce Connect PTT Pro enables PTT calling and secure text messaging over the cellular network through an easy-to-deploy cost-effective subscription service.3,4
And you can create a simple user experience — just dedicate one of the programmable side buttons to PTT.
Add fully-featured PBX handset functionality with Zebra’s Workforce Connect Voice3,5. Caregivers no longer need to carry and manage a separate voice device. You no longer need to purchase and manage PBX handsets. And a custom interface makes it easy to execute even the most complex telephony features.
