As you all know from reading this blog, I am a big fan of the products from Tablet Kiosk. Coming soon is the latest released of a "ruggedized" UMPC. It still has some of the same familiarity of their current products. By adding a card reader for example, a restaurant worker could easily become mobile by entering orders and running a credit card for payment while still in the view of the customer. From the health care side of things, the unit could also be used to enter chart data and have the potential of adding patient data simply by swiping a patient's insurance card or personal health record card to add the information to a medical record, which would mean no longer having to fill out all those "paper" forms we all see in most practices and hate to write the same information over and over. Tablet PCs and UMPCs are really the ideal tool to bring paperless records to the forefront. Something along this line also saves valuable staff and physician time in not having to enter the hand written information from the paper to chart as well. It's a win-win for all.
