The Rising Role of Tablets in Healthcare

Healthcare Tablet ComputerWhile computers entered most workplaces decades ago, some aspects of the medical profession have been slower to adopt. Computers made appearances in nurse’s stations, billing areas, and medical transcription as early as any industry, but it’s not until recently that they’ve started following doctors right into exam and treatment rooms. That’s because it’s not until recently that computers have been able to meet doctors needs for power, portability, sturdiness, and a quick note-and-reference usability that’s readily found in the paper files they were used to.

Finally, however, rugged tablet technology has closed that gap, and tablets now offer all the functionality doctors have needed in the office, plus dozens of other benefits that doctors have been hoping to get into their treatment rooms for some time.

Fortunately, the long, proud, history of the PIN number hasn’t run out just yet, as new devices and technology have provided ways to combat criminal activity that will be very hard or impossible to overcome. Advances such as EMV cards, also known as Chip & PIN cards, require that an encrypted, non-duplicatable card be present (more…)
