IntelliDOT "medical iPod"

Banking on the popularity of the iPod, IntelliDOT is describing its new CAREt Handheld as the medical equivalent. In reality it's actually used to keep track of medication, ensuring its safe administration without having to tote around a clipboard full of paperwork. Doctors and nurses simply scan a patient's wristband, then use the Handheld's keypad to process the documentation. The unit in turn communicates with a CAREt Server via 802.11b/g wireless. Battery life on the Handheld is 14 hours, which should be enough to last an extended shift. The basic Handheld is currently available to interested medical offices; a Specimen Collection module will be ready soon, and coming in the second half of 2007 will be a Blood Administration module.
