    Sounds like a low end touchscreen laptop with some customised software.

    The big question is — is that customised software compatible with physician’s EMRs (electronic medical records)?

    Unless the data can be saved in an EMR, like WorldVista (the open source EMR sponsored by the VA, the US government, and many physicians), then the data from this device will be difficult to integrate into a patient’s healthcare plan.

    Furthermore, unless the physician has identical or very compatible software on the other end, the “device” will be useless.
