This will be your chance to to win a brand new Lenovo Touch Screen M90Z touch screen computer.
The contest comes in 2 parts, one for an individual to win and secondly a nomination for a charity or non profit company to win a set of 5 Lenovo touch screen computers. I have been working with one to evaluate how it can be used with healthcare and what possible applications can be used. I have been using various applications and wrote up my initial evaluation back in September. Since that time I have also worked with other software applications like Skype and a few others to test the camera and speech recognition applications. It is running Windows 7 so it runs lean and mean.
During the week of December 5th to December 9ths is my time frame for the give-a-way and below you will be able to see list of other participating sites. Here’s how it works and how to enter. December 5th is on a Sunday and the last day to enter is Thursday December 9th.
Don’t start until the 5th of December as your entries won’t count until the start date. One of the other sites has begun their contest this week so check the links below to enter this week as there is one that started.
Your chances should be pretty good her as it’s only the readers of the Medical Quack so why not try. First of all in the right hand top side of the Medical Quack I have a poll running on whether or not you would like to be able to use your cell phone as a scanner to find FDA recalls via Microsoft Bar Codes. I’m not going to ask that you say yes, just vote however your feel but a yes is ok. If you want to read up on this topic, use the BAR CODE CAMPAIGN link at the top of the Medical Quack to read up, it’s neat and we all could use it to find recalled products in the stores! Everyone is coming up with all kinds of mobile applications and this one is universal with all the FDA recalls coming out and everyone with a smart phone could use it, plus clinics and hospitals could scan their stents and other devices before using them as well to ensure it has not been recalled!
After you have voted the poll with update and show you the results. At the bottom is a link that says “comment” – click on it and go to the website where you can see some additional details.
The home site of where the poll is located on Vizu will open up. If it does not already open to the middle tab, click on “poll results” and you will see a Google Map. The next step is to find you and your vote pin. If you are back east this might be a little more difficult but you can use the zoom in and out to make it larger so the pins are easier to see.
Use the plus and minus buttons on the left to zoom in and out and find yourself as each flag will be date stamped with a location.
I was going to use Facebook but everyone is not on Facebook so I am resorting to email so everyone can have a chance to win. At the top of my blog there is a link to email me, so click on it and a form will open for you to fill in. You can copy and paste the information from the Google Map poll right on the comment section. When you click on the pin, the window appears with the information. Remember the dates of December 5th through the 9th are the only ones valid to use for the contest.
If you can’t find the email link at the top of the blog here’s the link here as well.
In addition there is a special offer to get a free wireless keyboard and mouse if you are not the winner and order one using the special promotion code at the post below and also located on the right hand side of the Medical Quack, just scroll down until you find it.
Personally I really like having the all in one unit too without a tower which means I can move it around easily enough and have done a little bit of that and used it as a secondary VGA screen, you can do that.
NOW IF YOU DO NOT WIN,CHECK OUT THESE OTHER HEALTHCARE BLOGS LISTED BELOW, AS THEY ARE ALSO GIVING AWAY A LENOVO TOUCH SCREEN COMPUTER AND LOOK FOR THE DATES TO ENTER. THEIR CONTESTS WILL BE DIFFERENT THAN MINE SO READ THE RULES AS TO HOW TO ENTER FROM THEIR BLOGS.
I am thinking once word gets out and since I am one of the first few going here the competition might get heavier toward the ending dates.
CONTEST #2 – A SET OF 5 LENOVO M90Z COMPUTERS FOR A CHARITY OR NON PROFIT HEALTHCARE ORGANIZATION
DO YOU KNOW OF A NON PROFIT OR OTHER ORGANIZATION PROVIDING CHARITY OR OTHER SOCIAL SERVICES THAT COULD USE A SET OF 5 M90Z COMPUTERS? IF SO, READ ON!
Lenovo is also giving away three packages of 5 M90z units each, destined for worthy social/non-profit causes such hospitals, clinics, schools, community centers , and the like, a process in which all participating site owners will be invited to assist soliciting entries for consideration.
In addition 3 packages of five (5) M90z units will be awarded to a worthy medical or educational institution such as a clinic, hospital, school, community center, adult education facility, etc located in US/CA will be given away. If you are an institution yourself or know of one who could use a set of five M90z touch screen computers, write me an email explaining why and how the healthcare organization would benefit, in other words how would having touchscreen computers work into their organization. As an example, this could be a clinic providing free care and who are perhaps short on resources, or a need to provide patients an easy way to check in and doctors to enter healthcare data.
The healthcare facility must be located in the US or in Canada.
Preference will be given to non-profits and those who provide services that promote healthcare services to all.
The organization will need to have a software application in mind where the use of the M90Z would help. This could be an electronic medical records system, an imaging center working with patient x-rays or other images, or again a software system that helps patients check in for a few examples.
Each week a winner will be announced, and the schedule goes as follows:
December 1st through the 6th – first submittal period
December 7th through 13th – second submittal period
December 14 through 20th third submittal period
If you miss the first time frame, don’t worry as you can submit an email to me anytime during the 3 time frames. Common sense though will tell you to not wait though until the last couple days to be considered.
