Gatekeeper offers doctors healthy returns

The system is a first for the federal government's multibillion dollar national medical payments administration and is also the first system to use digital certificates, issued under the commonwealth's "Gatekeeper" PKI strategy. Certificates Australia (CA) , the local subsidiary of e-security solutions provider Baltimore Technologies, won the business to supply the technology and hosting services for the venture.

The certificates will be generated and managed from CA's "highly-secure" domain .

In addition to securely exchanging electronic payments across the country, the online system will "streamline a number of health care administrative processes for patients, doctors, medical staff, pharmacists and others involved in the delivery of health services".

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.
