3HC HomeHealth andHospice Care

The Durabook U12Ci will Replace All Existing Field Laptops In the Next Year

FREMONT, CA – August 07, 2013 ‐ GammaTech Computer Corp., a major international manufacturer and supplier of innovative notebook and tablet computers, has been chosen by 3HC Home Health and Hospice Care, Inc., a leading local home health, hospice, and private duty provider serving eastern North Carolina, to supply its field clinicians with rugged notebooks. Over a two‐year period, more than 200 standard field laptops will be converted to GammaTech’s U12Ci rugged convertible notebook.

“We had a need for a new computing solution when our standard laptops consistently became damaged from drops, spills and other accidents in the field,” said Mary Bartlett, vice president, finance and CFO of 3HC Home Health and Hospice Care, Inc. “We chose the GammaTech U12Ci because of its features and price. Half of our clinicians have been using the rugged notebook for the past year and are very impressed with how well it has held up on the job. They especially appreciate the built‐in handle that eliminates the need for a case and saves time.”

The DDURABOOK U12Ci features a 12.1” resistive touch panel that can easily be converted from notebook to tablet based on user preference. Built to Military Standard 810G, the U12Ci is resistant to drop, shock, spill and dust all while remaining slim and lightweight. With long battery life, security features and more, the U12Ci offers Ultrabook performance in an affordable yet rugged platform.

“Health providers need computers that they can depend on every day, no matter where they are,” said Jen Chen, GammaTech president. “Our U12Ci gives 3HC’s field clinicians access to the information and programs they need to better serve their patients.”
