I think the device looks pretty nifty. In my experience, fingerprint ID's work about 75% of the time on the first or second try. So I'd like to be able to scan my badge or log in manually if the thing happens to not like my fingers.
We have computer charting where I work. The thing is okay, but there are 2 computers available among 6 beds in an ICU where if all 6 are filled, that means they're all pretty sick and it makes getting to the computer to actually sit down and chart, very difficult.
Our charting involves menu type stuff and a "to do" list that's sort of redundant. So I'm interested not only in the actual device, but also the programming that goes into it. Software that's time-consuming to use, isn't necessarily better just because it's at the bedside and portable. If you spend too long typing at the bedside then a difficult patient or talkative family will distract you and that can be annoying. I'd like to see a point-and-click assessment with free text comment fields available for each abnormality, but enough clickable abnormals that you don't spend all day on the assessment of a critical patient.
I noticed in the video that the nurse has the thing facing the patient. I so would not do that! I don't ever show a patient or the family what I'm charting, even if I'm standing in the room doing paper charting.
Oh, and the little stands for the patient rooms... ports or whatever... each port needs to double as a recharger, no matter where it is. Period. That way if one nurse spends her whole shift taking one tablet around with her to all her patients' rooms, it'll recharge some each time she plugs it into anything. And the facilities that use these need to have a few on standby in case a tablet's battery does run dry.
All in all, it's a nice little thing. But hospitals have found out the hard way that backup systems are everything, like having paper flowsheets for when the computer's down, having backup power for the pyxis or omnicell so meds can be given, etc. If your hospital still functions halfway decent when the crap hits the fan then you're doing okay.
