The use of paper-filled binders may still be hospital doctors' preferred system for collecting and filing information, but the benefits of something like the Digital Device would be undoubtedly beneficial for health professionals who carry out home visits. The on-the-go job description can especially allow for more opportunities and places for printed data to go missing.

Ryan Espey has come up with a concept tablet that caters specifically to the medical workers who carry out house calls, affording them the means to record and store information and telephone their patients to organize appointments on the move. The innovative features of the Digital Device for Patient Records include a camera for taking snapshots of wounds, a touchscreen keyboard for data input, smartphone capabilities, internal memory and systematic software.
