HI all. Android versions change like the winds. At the moment we supply 7.1 Nougat, and can support 8.0 Oreo, with a small update. Android 9 Pie s on its way, and v10 (Q) isi n development. Android it now very stable and we try to follow what Android provides.

Do hospitals now allow Android devices on wards? We have found some do, some dont....

The great advantage with Android is that it has a lot of features already installed. For instance, for those who have Softpro Medusa, we can now use the Android OS WIFI and wired network point to automatically move safety tests to the device in the database. Whilst this removes a lot of paperwork from the engineers, and allows more tool time (something I am always in favour of, being a 30 year experienced old school biomed engineer, and hating all the paperwork), it does take a lot of trust in the system, as well as some help from the IT dept.
