Health Care working with “Open Pizza Box” Notebook Computers
Posted Apr 09 2009 6:21pm
I couldn’t pass this one up. Technology in healthcare involves using the right tools, and I have always said being mobile requires the right equipment so why should one be walking around with a notebook that resembles an “open pizza box” as shown here.
I became tired of “flipping lids” a long time ago, even at a coffee shop, watching others needing to find a table to light their notebooks to be productive. With a tablet, I can be anywhere, no table required. Here’s a post I wrote on the topic a while back. Myself, I hate flipping lids and prefer a slate tablet. BD
Below is a picture of a story the La Times reported on showing how Dr. Dennis Saver is using his PC and electronic medical software to improve patient care. I'm not sure carrying a laptop is the best choice. I would have preferred to see him carrying a tablet PC, but at least he is using information technology to manage the patient chart and all the associated documentation that goes along with it.
