Clinical Tablet

Clinical tablet is another name for a medical clinical assistant.

A medical clinical assistant or MCA is a portable fully featured PC which can be carried about. Unlike laptops, MCAs do not fold out.

Data can be passed both ways, eliminating the need for written notes and courier delays.
