In Pictures: How to do Big Data in healthcare

Many healthcare organisations like to talk about data analytics. However, here are eight pieces of expert advice to help you actually do it.

Healthcare is replete with big data analytics use cases that offer measurable results, including reduced hospital readmissions, better medication management, improved strategic planning and heightened fraud detection.

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.

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.
