HP has unveiled a line of devices specifically catering to hygiene requirements in the healthcare sector.
The Healthcare Edition line includes the HP Elitebook 840 G5 notebook, the HP EliteOne 800 G4 all-in-one desktop and the HP HC270cr clinical review display 27-inch monitor.
The Elitebook 850 G5 notebook includes software that disables the keyboard and display, allowing users to clean the device with germicidal wipes while the device stays on without accidentally pressing a button.
All three new devices are integrated with RFID readers giving users single sign-on authentication. HP said they also provide the maximum device and data protection to comply with HIPAA protections, the US legislation that provides data privacy provisions in healthcare.
The vendor said these were the first purpose-build devices for healthcare that address the unique requirements of the sector, including enhanced patient safety, smarter workflows, telemedicine solutions and data security.
"Healthcare is a unique setting, and our customers are looking for a very specific set of technology solutions," said vice president and general manager of commercial PCs Alex Cho.
"The HP Healthcare Edition portfolio was designed from the ground up with the needs of clinicians in mind, resulting in a portfolio of industry-first offerings that include the world’s most secure and manageable devices."
The notebook is expected to release in May, while the other two devices are expected to launch in June.
