Handheld with Wireless Return to Top

Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) with no Internet connectivity:
User's office is configured to work as a WLAN. MDPad devices equipped with a wireless net interface card (WNIC) communicate to an access point and then to central system(s). All transactions committed on the devices could be printed at any designated area(s) such as the front desk. On the way out the nurse or office assistant would handover the prescriptions, lab and other orders, go over any additional instructions, and schedule follow up appointments with the patients. Prescriptions may be faxed to a pharmacy from the central system. There is no Internet connectivity.

WLAN with Internet connectivity in office
WLAN's Central System is connected to internet (with a cable modem / xDSL / or dialup modem). There is wireless Internet connectivity in the office. The speed of connection to the Internet depends on the method of connectivity. All MDPad devices equipped with a WNIC can then access the internet within the office for internet surfing including "Care Transactions" such as:

a. Sending orders or information to pharmacies and such other providers who are capable of receiving such orders via Internet.
b. Receiving lab and radiology results from such providers who are capable of sending such results via Internet.
c. Sending and receiving emails.

Wireless Wide Area Network (WWAN)
The MDPad device with a wireless modem brings wireless wide area Network ("WWAN") i.e. mobile access to users. WWAN's are generally operated by public carriers like Metricom, Verizon, AT&T, GoAmerica, Aether et al and use open standards such as CDPD, GSM, CDMA and PHS. Transfer rates are from 5 kbps to 20 kbps. It provides the greatest coverage but there are coverage holes and speed issues.

In the "access region" the user will be able to transmit "Care Transactions" via Internet as well as do web surfing.

WLAN with Internet Connectivity in office and
Wireless Internet Connectivity outside the office
This is a hybrid environment combining WLAN in your Internet enabled office with WWAN outside the office.

To get this functionality, the wireless NIC is changed to a CDPD modem when the user is outside the office.
