I'm sure many of you are familiar with the WOWs or "workstation on wheels" in the hospital setting. Loved them during training. Outpatient though, Epic EMR on a 15" laptop monitor is pointless. On my full size desktop, documentation is SO much more efficient. We are provided laptops (imaged to our user name so impossible to run duplicates) but I can hook that up to a monitor, problem is powering said monitor (something small 20-22" range). I've seen ergotron carts with battery packs that run in the $3k range for a full setup(2K for life kinnex battery system, 700-1k for the cart; https://www.ergotron.com/en-us/products/product-details/sv10-1300-0#/).
1) Any outpatient providers use one for their office work? (ie wheel in and out of patient rooms; I have 3 I swap between) 2) Anyone know of alternatives? 3) Anyone who has done this, worth the cost? (I'm ok with spending the money so long as its worth while)
For our line of work it may be a worthwhile investment but returns on these items are not friendly and this is a pretty niche item. Not sure if this fits any rules but I tried asking buildapc and they didn't have much to say; sorry if this does. I've also looked up AC powered battery packs but who knows how reliable this would be. Thanks in advance for any advice
