Apparently he's just bought an old monastery in Italy and is doing it up as a "villa" for the odd weekend away.

He must be pretty good at DIY then !

It's a hard life.

Just seen the Philips Trim III ECG Pagewriter, it uses Windows CE and is capable to being plugged into the hospital network.

Now the fun starts with the first virus

I didn't ask the rep what AV precautions have been taken because to be fair he had only just seen the machine himself. But maybe something to bear in mind.

Well we are in the process of having a new widebore CT installed. It is a GE Lightspeed. My understanding is that the control conole, & workstations (both diagnostic & Radiotherapy) are running Linux. Probably one of the few companies who can tell Microsoft to shove it.

We are almost ready to go to tender for alot of kit including RIS/Pacs.We have added a clause to the tenders that it is the responsibility of the manufacturer to keep the operating systems updated re anti virus software. Will be interesting to see how this works out in the real world ie outside the tender document! I suppose it covers the litigation side of things...


Life is too short to be bitter.........Enjoy it
