I need your help.
I have the ear of a couple of VPs and some developers. I have a meeting in a couple of weeks and I want to be on top of my game.
Tell me how you envision WebOS could affect your daily routine.
What applications would you like to see?
How would you like to see them run?
Would you stick to EMR stuff only? What about scheduling and resource management? Clinicals?

I'm neither a VP nor a "developer" per se... however I am an application coordinator for the EMR in a large healthcare company. Does that count?

I would love to be in that meeting...

Solar P: WebOS... is great!

Boss: Wow, can I see it?

SP: No, it is not released yet.

Boss: Who hired this guy?

Developer: Windows is...

Everyone: Ahh... I know Microsoft Windows... it is great.. no one ever gets fired for mentioning Windows... or deploying... windows has issues, but it works!


All jokes aside, now is not the time to mention some OS that is not proven and you know absolutely nothing about... don't get caught up in the marketing hype...

Well....so here is my reasoning.
1) The company I work for is extremely conservative and would not promote an un proven product. I am only placing it on their radar. This company has a reputation to uphold and would never put patient care at risk.
2) One of the 2 VPs to which I am speaking is very innovative and if anyone would push this through, it would be this person.

All I am looking for right now is all the input I can get from anyone and everyone involved in healthcare and technology.

I need to take to this group the good and the bad. Tell me what your ideal would be and tell me why Windows doesn't work or why it does work.

If you are fine with windows/windows mobile, tell me that. What types of apps would you look for?

Like I said, its jut proof of concept right now, but I am hoping that a relationship with Palm could be formed and we would see some fruit in a reasonable amount of time.

Many of our apps could be adopted to WebOS without too much effort. So its all a matter of getting the ball rolling (hopefully)

Theog: Your reaction is my first reaction too. But I think we really need to at least move in the right direction and be proactive instead of reactive.

Cary328is: Please join in. I need all the input I can get.

Ask your developer what their main goal happens to be... running on an OS or being OS dependent....

We are moving toward OS dependency... and I'd have to believe that most large hosp (and other organizations) are moving that way as well....

But it depends on what we are talking about... business side will stay windows.

Heck, even Palm plans to be a "WEB" OS... lol...

Guess I'm not getting what you want someone to tell you about an OS that is not even launched... you may have one or two people here who knows about the pre, but I'm sure they are under NDA.... and laughing at the rest of us... lol

There are so many PalmOS medical programs an emulator would have been the perfect start. But now...
