Dell yesterday announced that it would be integrating healthcare software in its Android tablet cum smartphone– Streak. The software will enable doctors to access patient information and electronic medical records as they go about their daily work reported Reuters.
“When we designed the device we thought about what a clinician might like, it’s perfect size to fit into a lab coat, and allows you to be able to communicate anywhere,” said Jamie Coffin, vice president of Dell Healthcare and Life Sciences.
According to Dell, Streak can help in extending a hospital’s information network, allowing for secure and fast access to patient data.
Healthcare market has emerged as a major focus for Dell, which bought Perot Systems last year – bringing in a strong base of healthcare customers.
Dell sells Streak for $549.99, or $299.99 with a 2-year contract from AT&T in United States.
