Three Fujitsu 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 complete list of Laureates, visit
