PDA Model-eMedCheck (Web site)


An electronic medical screening tool can decrease the amount of time spent on patient screening and/or registration, improve accuracy of the patient receiving the correct medication, and serve as a data collection system—essential elements during a public health emergency. eMedCheck, used on a personal digital assistant Palm T|X Handheld, is a medical screening tool that has been tested and evaluated during exercises and real-life events at local health departments.
