Customers Awarded Computerworld Honors Program Laureate Status
IDG's Computerworld magazine honored three
Fujitsu Computer Systems Corporation customers -- the College of
Engineering at the University of Virginia Tech, Provena Home
Care and Saint Clare's Hospital -- as members of the
Computerworld Honors Program Laureates Class of 2007.
Established in 1988, the Computerworld Honors Program brings
together the principles of the world's foremost information
technology companies to recognize and document the achievements
of the men, women, organizations and institutions around the
world, whose visionary applications of information technology
promote positive social, economic and educational change.
"We congratulate Virginia Tech, Provena and Saint Clare's on
being honored by Computerworld magazine for implementing
innovative IT projects that benefit society and promote positive
social, economic and educational change," said Richard
McCormack, senior vice president of marketing at Fujitsu
Computer Systems Corporation. "Fujitsu continues to be committed
to using technology for the good of society."
The College of Engineering at Virginia Tech was honored in the
education and academia category for its Tablet PC-based learning
environment. To facilitate an active and creative learning
environment, in 2006 the College of Engineering at Virginia Tech
became the first and largest public college of engineering to
require all 1,400 incoming freshmen to purchase Tablet PCs.
While there are a number of Tablet PC solutions on the market,
based on a partnership with Microsoft and Fujitsu, called the
Premier Alliance, Virginia Tech recommended students purchase
the Fujitsu LifeBook® T4000 Series convertible Tablet PC, which
combines the familiarity of a notebook with the versatile
functionality of a slate Tablet PC. Today, both faculty and
students use Tablet PCs inside and outside the classroom.
Provena Home Care was honored in the health care category for
its mobile patient information system. At Provena, the ability
to accurately track patient information is vital to meeting
patient care and business goals. To improve efficiency, accuracy
of patient and billing information, and quality of patient care,
the IT team implemented a mobile, touch-screen-enabled, digital
patient information system and equipped clinicians with Fujitsu
LifeBook P1500 Series convertible notebooks to enable them to
record symptoms, care provided, and general observations at the
point of care.
Saint Clare's Hospital, a state-of-the-art facility, was honored
in the health care category for its chartless hospital
environment. To create an all-digital environment, the hospital
equipped caregivers with Fujitsu LifeBook T4000 Series Tablet
PCs to read and record patient data by typing, writing or
dictating information into the patient information system. By
digitizing patient information, the hospital has improved the
patient experience and reduced the cost of care.
The Computerworld Honors medal ceremonies were held on June 4 at
the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C. To view the
