February 15, 2006 Increased adoption of wireless technologies by healthcare organizations requires a wide variety of device types, depending on the clinical or business application. Yet, according to Gartner analyst Ken Dulaney in a May, 2005 report ("Healthcare Device Category Selection Guide"), there "is a product void in the 1-kilogram weight range." This void, between traditional PDAs, which offer limited functionality, and standard clamshell or tablet PCs, which can be too heavy or cumbersome for regular bedside use, is to now be addressed by Panasonic’s Toughbook Wireless Display, which designed to offer an optimal combination of size, weight and functionality for point of care applications. Panasonic announced the new computing device specifically designed to support e-health initiatives, improve clinical care and enhance business performance at the 2006 HIMSS Conference & Exhibition in San Diego yesterday.
