IDAT is a modular wireless device that has been designed to make communication easier between staff and patients in hospitals, while also serving as a portable platform to access the required information from the database.
It consists of two parts one of which, called the ‘clip’, is used for making or receiving calls. The other part which is the screen module, with the help of a smaller module [responsible for wireless capability] is used to access information on the intranet, receive calls etc. The screen module also comes with a built-in micro projector that helps in accessing visual data any time and anywhere for conducting important discussions or for sharing information with the patient.
A single charger unit is able to power up both the modules. On removal from the charger unit, the screen module wakes up to display a log-in box, in which the user has to enter the respective id in order to use the device. A finger print scanner is also provided as an alternative choice. As the secured system checks the authenticity and grants permission, calls and information get diverted to the respective user. The IDAT or the Instant Data Analysis and Transfer has been designed by Pedro Gomes.
IDATs main challenge is to improve the performance within this context, working on 5 different frames:Access to data; Data visualization; internal communication; Mobility optimization; network management.
