Honeywell Scanning & Mobility showcases its full healthcare product line at HIMSS2010, booth #6455

Fort Mill, S.C. – March 1, 2010 – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today announced it will display an expanded line of mobility solutions for the healthcare industry at the HIMSS2010 Annual Conference & Exhibition with the addition of the Dolphin® 9700hc. Honeywell’s bar code scanning and mobility devices help organizations manage patient risks and increase the effectiveness, speed, and quality of customers’ patient care, while maximizing return on investment. Honeywell’s products also help healthcare providers implement the five patient rights – the right patient, right drug, right dose, right route, and right time – when administering medications.

To demonstrate its ongoing commitment to increase patient safety and ease of use for healthcare practitioners, Honeywell will display the new Dolphin 9700hc mobile computer line in Honeywell’s disinfectant-ready housings at HIMSS 2010. A key differentiator for Honeywell in the healthcare space, the disinfectant ready housings are built to resist damages caused by frequent exposure to the harsh cleaning chemicals used in healthcare environments. The 9700hc, in addition to other scanning and mobility healthcare solutions will be on display at the Honeywell booth, #6455.

“The healthcare industry continues to modernize and implement technologies such as bar coding to help provide premium healthcare services with increased safety at minimal cost,” said Dave Stewart, North American healthcare sales leader for Honeywell Scanning & Mobility. “As a leader in bar code scanning, imaging and mobility solutions, Honeywell is poised to help the industry meet their modernization goals through easy-to-use solutions that enable providers to safely care for their patients.”

The Dolphin 9700hc, launched in January 2010, is a rugged digital assistant with multi-functional data collection and communications capabilities. The 9700hc is equipped with a large, high-resolution display that provides superior readability of on-screen data, such as patient information. The ergonomic form factor, designed for comfortable use and easy in-pocket storage, combined with the latest wireless technology, enables providers to perform fast and accurate bedside patient care and instantly transmit updates to electronic medical records. Additionally, Honeywell’s Shift-PLUS™ power management system powers real-time wireless and multi-media applications continuously for eight hours or more, supplying nurses with a dependable device that will last throughout their entire shift.

In addition to Honeywell’s products, several third party solutions will be featured in the Honeywell booth this year. Aruba Networks, a global leader in 802.11 wireless LANs and secure mobility solutions, will demonstrate how it combines Honeywell’s healthcare-specific mobile computing devices with its wireless services to offer hospitals exceptional communication capabilities. Additional applications from solution providers such as Cerner, Dataflo, Lawson, EmKat, SOTI and Sydion LLC will showcase how they work with Honeywell’s products to deliver complete solutions to address hospital needs, including bedside medication verification, emergency field based care, and materials management.
