Motorola Enterprise Mobility Solutions Deployed at 20 Long-Term Care Facilities

Participating Facility Sands Point Center Expects to Realize a 450 Percent ROI After Transitioning From Paper to Electronic Medical Records Using Motorola's Enterprise Wireless Solutions

SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Enterprise Mobility business of Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced that SigmaCare(R), a leading provider of point-of-care technology and professional services for the long-term healthcare industry, is deploying Motorola enterprise mobility solutions (http://www.motorola.com/business/v/index.jsp?vgnextoid=d21475489c075110VgnVCM 1000008406b00aRCRD&appInstanceName=default) across 20 long-term care facilities -- enabling improved staff efficiency and quality of patient care. This deployment is made possible by a recently-issued $13.5 million grant from the State of New York for the Quality of Care Demonstration Project, to help long-term care facilities transition to electronic medical records (EMR) from paper-based documentation.

"Long-term care facilities are very demanding technical environments. We selected Motorola's enterprise wireless LAN (WLAN) solutions and MC70 Enterprise Digital Assistants (EDAs) because these innovative, wireless technologies ensure the security, resiliency and high performance needed to support our critical mobile care applications," said Steve Pacicco, chief executive officer of SigmaCare. "Motorola delivers a comprehensive set of highly reliable mobility solutions for healthcare, and the powerful combination of Motorola and SigmaCare enables our customers to focus on patients instead of paperwork."

One of the facilities participating in the deployment is Sands Point Center for Health & Rehabilitation, a 180-bed healthcare facility located in Port Washington, NY. The center went live with the Motorola enterprise mobility solution in October 2007 to increase the level of personal interaction between clinicians and patients. Because of improved documentation and efficiency gains, Sands Point Center expects to realize a 450 percent return on investment (ROI) over five years. In addition, the anticipated revenue increase of $3.9 million over the duration of the five-year contract is projected to increase the center's valuation by more than $10.8 million.

To support the SigmaCare mobile EMR system (http://www.ehealthsolutions.com/) and enable always-on wireless delivery of vital clinical applications throughout each long-term care facility, SigmaCare installed Motorola WS5100 Wireless Switches and AP300 Access Ports that provide enterprise-grade wireless coverage, and Motorola MC70 EDAs that provide mobile access to critical data. The system makes it possible for physicians, nurses and the entire interdisciplinary team to access patient information and other EMR data in real-time at the point-of-care. This process significantly improves documentation, decision-making processes and patient care; reduces paperwork and operational costs; and increases workflow efficiencies and revenue. Looking ahead, Sands Point plans to implement Motorola LS4278 barcode scanners to manage the distribution of medications.

"Before we installed the EMR system, it used to take up to an hour for a physician to complete paperwork at the end of the day," said Fran Regan, director of nursing at Sands Point Center. "With this technology, you have all the information you need literally at your fingertips. Now we have more time to dedicate to delivering superior patient care because the paperwork administration aspect of our job has been significantly streamlined."

Motorola enterprise WLAN solutions provide healthcare organizations with a proven, reliable platform for bringing mobile applications to the point of care, while meeting HIPAA security requirements. Through its end-to-end portfolio -- including both WLAN and the MC70 EDAs -- and seamless integration with partners such as SigmaCare, Motorola delivers complete mobility solutions for hospitals, long-term care facilities and physician offices.

"The combination of Motorola's WLAN and bedside mobile computers with SigmaCare's EMR brings tremendous gains to both patient safety and the ability of caregivers to spend more time with their patients," said Jeff Schou, senior director, Global Healthcare Solutions, Motorola Enterprise Mobility business. "The Sands Point Center deployment clearly illustrates how Motorola's history of innovation in wireless and our mobile computing product line benefit healthcare facilities transitioning from paper to EMR systems. Enterprises across all industries are realizing the strategic need to invest in wireless infrastructures rather than continuing to support both wired and wireless systems. Motorola's enterprise mobility portfolio is best positioned to help them implement an all-wireless enterprise solution."

Enterprise WLAN (http://www.motorola.com/business/v/index.jsp?vgnextoid=d68b3acf35e95110VgnVCM 1000008406b00aRCRD) is part of Motorola's portfolio of innovative wireless broadband solutions and services that complement and complete internet protocol (IP) networks. Delivering IP coverage to virtually all spaces both indoors and outdoors, the portfolio includes fixed broadband, mesh, broadband over powerline, WiMAX and enterprise WLAN solutions for private and public networks.

Revenue has been recorded in previous periods.
