Electronic Medical Record (EMR) technology is supported by 753KL medical floor scales from Healthometer, but the EMR software itself is not included, and requires a specialist to configure. Precision Weighing Balances cannot offer these setup services. It is the responsibility of your own facility to hire a 3rd party consultant, or have an in-house professional perform the installation. Software setup is too complicated for the average computer user to install.
Transferring the weight of the patient to a computer requires serial communications software that needs to be installed on a computer and does not come with the scale. If you don't have EMR you could purchase WinWedge 32 Standard RS232 software allowing you to export patient's weight into an Excel spreadsheet for ease of documentation.
