New mobile tech will simplify healthcare for medical professionals and patients alike in Western New York.
CHEEKTOWAGA, NEW YORK – Bak USA and Aspire of Western New York announced a proof of concept pilot program this morning at Aspire Health Center in Cheektowaga, New York.
Under the agreement, Bak USA will be loaning nine new mobile computers to Aspire of WNY, a support center for children and adults with disabilities. Aspire will use the devices in various service settings to support human service applications and electronic health record management. Another local business partner, Accessium Group, will install the software onto the devices and participate in evaluating the overall effectiveness of the implementation.
“Mobility is key. We don’t want our employees tethered to an isolated work station.”
The press conference featured small speeches from Bak USA Chairman & Co-Founder J.P. Bak, Aspire President & CEO Thomas Sy, and a panel of Aspire employees and benefactors. The teams will work together to pilot Bak USA’s rugged tablet called the Seal 8, and its durable 2-in-1 laptop called the Atlas 12. Both devices are designed to maximize mobility and enhance efficiency.
“Mobility is key,” said Thomas Sy. “We don’t want our employees tethered to an isolated work station.”
“These devices as concept are a helping hand to each of us that have challenges in their daily lives,” added J.P. Bak. “Bak USA is not just a tablet manufacturer. We are here to make jobs but also want to create affordable tablets that are available to everyone—and I mean everyone.”
The panel of Aspire employees spoke of their excitement to work with Bak USA, and explained how integrating new technology into their system will allow for improved, more engaging services.
The pilot program is underway and is scheduled to conclude in early November.
“These devices as concept are a helping hand to each of us that have challenges in their daily lives.”
