In Pictures: 10 key Windows 8 features for healthcare professionals

From improved security and administration to better tablet battery life, there's a lot to like in Windows 8 for healthcare organizations.

Windows To Go The bring your own device (BYOD) phenomenon causes headaches and frustration for hospital IT managers, since many consumer mobile devices don't provide the robust information security that's necessary in healthcare. Windows 8 Enterprise introduces a feature called Windows To Go. With Windows To Go, an admin can copy Windows 8 to a USB flash drive and then give that flash drive to a doctor or a nurse. The clinician can use that flash drive on a PC at home to boot up into a secure environment and access applications and files. Microsoft only supports USB flash drives certified for Windows To Go; most of them come as 32, 64, 128 or 256 GB.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
