The Mobile Clinical Assistant; a new category in Tablet PCs for healthcare


Over the past few years Microsoft partner, Motion Computing, has focused on serving the healthcare industry. In February at HIMSS, the company introduced an entirely new category of Tablet PC; the Mobile Clinical Assistant, also known as the C5. In March, Motion introduced a new full-sized Tablet PC, the LE1700. It not only offers a touch screen for data input but is also fully capable of running Windows Vista with Aero glass graphics.

In this special video edition of my House Calls for Healthcare Professionals series of streaming audio and video programs, I’m joined by Joel French, VP for Motion Computing, and Dr. Michael Blum, VP and CMIO of UCSF Medical Center. We take a first look at these exciting new Tablet PCs and discuss how these devices are being used by clinicians around the world.
