HealthBlog readers, and even those who don’t read HealthBlog, know that I am unabashedly a fan of the Microsoft Surface Pro 3. As I have proclaimed here before, my Surface Pro 3 is the best computing device I have ever used. I don’t say that lightly, and certainly not because I work at Microsoft. I say it based on my own experience using Surface Pro 3 at work and at home, as well as during my travels around the world. I also say it after listening to respected peers and colleagues who are now using Surface Pro 3 in patient care. These are doctors, nurses and other clinicians who have discovered why Surface Pro 3 offers the perfect blend of everything a healthcare provider needs for this demanding profession we call healthcare.
I’m writing this today because our Surface team has just made available a new infographic and whitepaper produced by HIMSS Media. The infographic nicely summarizes some of the important attributes of Surface that make it such a compelling device for clinicians. In the whitepaper, you’ll learn why so many practicing physicians are discovering that Surface Pro 3 is not only satisfying to use, it is making them more productive.
If you are a doctor, nurse, or other kind of clinician and work in a private office, clinic or hospital, I would urge you to take Surface Pro 3 for a test drive. With Surface Pro 3, you’ll be able to run your legacy EMR/HIS applications, departmental solutions, and modern apps on a well-engineered and beautiful device that will not only delight you, but also delight your enterprise IT department. Surface Pro 3 delivers the goods for IT professionals who need to manage devices in the enterprise in order to protect sensitive patient and organizational data.
You can learn more about Surface Pro 3 in healthcare by downloading a PDF copy of the whitepaper and infographic. I believe once you get your hands on a Surface Pro 3, it will win you over just as it has me and so many of my clinical colleagues who work in healthcare.
