Mi-Co Announces Support for Motion Computing's C5, the Industry's First Mobile Clinical Assistant

Mi-Co Demonstrates Support of the C5 at HIMSS in New Orleans

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 13, 2007 -- Mi-Co, the leading mobile data capture software company, announced that it successfully demonstrated support for Motion Computing's new C5 Mobile Clinical Assistant (MCA) recently at HIMSS, the largest healthcare technology conference held in the United States. The C5 was announced by Motion Computing on February 20 during a joint conference with Intel in San Francisco.

The Motion C5, the first product in the MCA category, integrates durable design elements with key point-of-care data and image capture technologies to simplify workflows, ease clinician workloads and improve overall quality of care. Designed based on input from thousands of clinicians worldwide, the C5 brings reliable, automated patient data management directly to the point of care.

To effectively demonstrate the capabilities of the new C5 device, Mi-Co built a form-based sample application using Mi-Forms. This application was designed for the healthcare industry with the end users' needs in mind. It integrates Mi-Forms' industry-leading handwriting interpretation, Tablet PC forms development and Tablet PC forms runtime environments with the unique features of the C5: a barcode and RFID reader and a digital camera. This sample form is representative of the capabilities available to software companies developing ink-enabled interfaces for their enterprise applications.

Software companies focused on clinical documentation and minimizing errors can reduce their time to market for support of the C5 by joining the Mi-Co partner program where they will gain access to Mi-Forms script source code supporting the device.
