In Pictures: 10 key Windows 8 features for healthcare professionals

From improved security and administration to better tablet battery life, there's a lot to like in Windows 8 for healthcare organizations.

DirectAccess Windows 8 Enterprise includes a feature called DirectAccess through which remote users can access resources inside a corporate network without having to launch a separate VPN. This is especially important for doctors who need to see patient records when they get a call in the middle of the night from a sick patient.

DirectAccess also helps IT administrators apply the latest policies and software updates remotely. When DirectAccess is used along with Windows Server 2012, the entire solution is easier to deploy and implement within existing IPv4 infrastructures. In the same example, that busy doctor who needs to log on from home won't be bothering the IT administrator in the middle of the night.

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.
