Portable Data Terminals (PDTs)

Enhanced Exchange Cart/Patient Charge

The PDT is a tool used to interact with both the MaXM Inventory and Patient Chargeables system, freeing the user from the desk by allowing data entry at the site of exchange cart activity. Building upon the core capabilities of the Intermec/Janus PDT, AMS offers you the customized convenience of providing for both: (1) exchange cart replenishment using prompted entry, and (2) patient charge collection, on a single EPROM chip. Patient charge batches can be entered into the PDT during the same exchange cart session.

One of the greatest assets of the MaXM Enhanced Exchange Cart/Patient Charge PDT Application is the creation of inventory orders as part of the function, performing several steps in a single process rather than as separate steps, saving time, eliminating paperwork and avoiding duplication of effort.
