For years people in the business world have been toting their palmtop
computer organizers, keeping track of their appointments, business contacts,
and to do lists. These are rudimentary tasks for personalized digital assistants
expanding into the medical market with leaps and bounds. PDAs
are capable of keeping track of patients, providing common reference texts,
performing medical calculations, and providing quick drug references. It is
now possible to write patients prescriptions and have them sent electronically
to the front of the office where they are printed out. While still in their
experimental stages, there are even patient tracking and charting programs.
New programs are available for PDAs
everyday. It is our hope that this section will help provide the busy nurse
practitioner important information in this changing technology.
