New tablet designed for the medical market: The Motion C5, a MCA, Mobile Clinical Assistant device

The size, weight and features look pretty good.
At 3.1 lbs, it weighs less than most of my office charts!
Please let us know of your experience using EHRs with tablet screens under 12 inches.
We plan to post a review when the device is made available. SV

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 20, 2007 – Motion Computing®, a leader in ultramobile computing and wireless communications, today announced its new C5 mobile clinical assistant (MCA) at UCSF Medical Center during a joint conference with Intel. The MCA is a new computing category, created by Intel with support from Motion to enable nurses, physicians and other clinicians to do their jobs on the move.

The Motion C5, the first product in the MCA category, integrates durable design elements with key point-of-care data and image capture technologies to simplify workflows, ease clinician workloads and improve overall quality of care. Designed based on input from thousands of clinicians worldwide, the C5 brings reliable, automated patient data management directly to the point of care. Intel and Motion conducted extensive user level, ethnographic, human factors, time/motion and clinical workflow research. This research resulted in clear requirements for a purpose-built mobile device.
