Advantech, Microsoft and Intel team up to demo mobile clinical hardware
Advantech Australia will be holding a free roadshow in Sydney early next month.
The Technology in Medicine Roadshow features speakers from Advantech Australia, Intel Digital Health and Microsoft Windows Embedded Division, as well as product displays.
Advantech Australia’s medical product manager Brad Waters said the event, which is sponsored by Advantech, Microsoft Windows Embedded and Intel Digital Health, is targeted towards both medical and health professionals; and medical OEMs and system integrators.
“I would highly recommend that everyone looking to streamline clinical workflow and improve patient care attend the free medical roadshow,” Mr Waters said.
Speakers include Mr Waters, who will introduce Advantech Australia’s new MICA-101 Mobile Clinical Assistant, and demonstrate several applications where the MICA-101 can assist in improving clinical workflow within a medical environment.
Intel Australia Digital Health Group industry development manager Dr George Margelis will also speak at the event, focusing on transforming healthcare using technology.
“Intel Digital Health Group has been researching this area for almost a decade,” Mr Waters said.
“The Mobile Clinical Assistant platform, based on this research, is designed to combine the best features of modern information technology and the requirements of clinicians.
“George will discuss the research leading up to the development of the MCA and the results of trials from around the world showing its benefits.”
Tim Schroder, Microsoft’s embedded channel manager – South Asia Pacific, will present on Microsoft’s strategy of specialised operating systems for specialised tasks.
“Depending on the task and needs of the device, Microsoft makes a range of operating systems fully componentised to allow hardware partners to build very focused products, whether it be portable ultrasound, hospital in-ward computing, or test and measure,” Mr Waters said.
Products on display at the roadshow will include the new MICA-101 Mobile Clinical Assistant, as well as Advantech’s range of medical grade point-of-care terminals; mini PC systems; and patient infotainment terminals.
The free roadshow will be held on Thursday, March 12, in the Microsoft Theatre at Microsoft Pty Ltd, 1 Epping Road, North Ryde, Sydney, NSW. Free parking is available underneath the venue.
The roadshow begins at 11.30am and finishes at 2pm, followed by lunch. A door prize will be provided by Microsoft's Xbox team.
