Health care professionals' effectiveness would be hugely enhanced by wirelessly connecting handhelds to patient records, meds and the many medical databases available. In addition to the obvious applications for use in remote areas and in emergency situations, the use of PDA's within a hospital could provide massive savings through more efficient time management and better patient care.
