Hospitals pick hi-tech clipboard featured on the BBC News website.
It makes no mention of doing bedside searches for information, or allowing clinicians to post their clinical questions – but that’s not to say it can’t handle it. I have a few concerns:
  1. Infection control – sure you can disinfect it, but clinicians can wash their hands between patients – do they?
  2. Security (1) – very tempting for thieves
  3. Security (2) – will it make it easier for people to access files via hacking wi-fi, ‘borrowing’ theclipboard etc.

But overall, it seems an exciting development!
