Intel recently announced a new “mobile computing platform for health care professionals”, dubbed the mobile clinical assistant. I used to be a big fan of tablet-style computers for health care use, but recently, I’m not so sure that this form factor works (at least in hospital environments). I think the technology itself is great, but there’s just something that doesn’t seem to work. Read more about the mobile clinical assistant here.
At last year’s OHA convention, I saw a few interesting products from Motion Computing. I wasn’t able to test out the devices for any period of time, but I think they may be on to something. I’ll try and post a profile and (preliminary) some thoughts of the products.
