This fall, hospitals and physicians will be able to order Dell’s five-inch Dell Streak Android 2.1-based mini-tablet as an option with Dell’s healthcare solutions, says the company. The device will be loaded with client apps designed to interact with Dell’s EMR and MCC (mobile clinical computing) enterprise software, providing healthcare professionals with digitized patient information, says the company.
While Dell is targeting its Streak tablet at EMR applications, Sprint is aiming its HTC-manufactured Evo 4G Android smartphone more specifically at mobile medical imaging in a partnership with Calgary Scientific. An Android version of the latter’s HIPPA-compliant ResolutionMD Mobile software, said to be “powered by PureWeb,” will be offered on the Evo 4G.
Sprint, meanwhile, has developed a secure platform for ResolutionMD and other medical imaging applications that spans its wireline IP network, as well as 3G and 4G wireless networks, says the carrier.
