As the healthcare industry continues to become more distributed, healthcare organizations are increasing their reliance on mobile links to access patient information and to update their master database at the point of care. Handheld computers have evolved into a viable platform for these systems. While initial projects have shown promise, several questions remain. This article explores the unique characteristics of handheld computers with respect to user interface design and wireless access, and introduces a prototype development effort.
