Nurses Using Chromebooks to Help With Flu Season

Mollen Immunization Clinics has selected Google Chromebooks to help healthcare workers deal with the upcoming immunization season more efficiently.

More than 4,000 of Mollen’s immunization clinics at Walmart and Sam’s Club locations will be furnished with Google Chromebooks. Furthermore, Mollen expects about 25,000 nurses will use the laptops, powered by Verizon Wireless, to check patient records to determine what vaccinations are needed.

Also, determining insurance eligibility, submitting claims, processing payments and tracking vaccine inventories on the cloud-centric computers will help streamline the immunization process and cut costs.

Millions of Americans will be immunized to fight against diseases like influenza, shingles, whooping cough and human papilloma virus (HPV) in the next few months, said Mollen.

In addition to enhancing healthcare, Mollen said Chromebooks will help eliminate more than 20 million pieces of paper from its business.
