Imagine the following scenario: A hospital has hired you as a consultant to recommend a tablet for their employees to use, with these parameters:
The hospital provides wifi access to their patients and staff.
The staff uses a cart with a computer on it to enter in patient data; the cart is bulky and hard to maneuver.
The hospital is seeking better alternatives to the computer cart.
The hospital staff carries Cisco IP phones so that they are easily reachable.
The network is fully operational and connects to the Internet.
The hospital has asked you to write a 3â€“5 page white paper recommending the best tablet for their employees. As your write your white paper:
Discuss potential security issues with iPads, Android, and Windows 8 tablets.
Consider laws and regulations related to health care and IT, such as HIPAA regulations. Consider the local and global implications of your choices.
Compare the pros and cons of different types of tablets as a hardware device.
Compare the pros and cons of different types of tablets in regard to the operating system.
Consider the different peripherals used to connect to the devices. The hospital requires these devices to be able to use a keyboard and mouse, and to connect to an external monitor (HDMI port).
After reviewing all of these considerations, provide a recommendation to the hospital about the device you recommend. Include your reasoning as to why you selected the device you did.
