Project Summary

• Main objective is about the availability of information for the Doctors while they are on the move. It was required to install this application first on the system from the internet then install it on the PDA on which it was to be tested. The PDA had to be connected to the PC using Active Sync or Hot Sync depending on the PDA type. The application had to be tested in various environments before releasing to customers. CSC performed acceptance, installation, card support, File transfer, Syncing [Hot Sync and Active Sync] and UI testing.

Business Challenge

• Clinicians who use the solution trust what they find to be accurate and unbiased. It provides hospital clinicians in depth information with the assurance of providing answers to most clinical drug, disease, toxicology and patient education question

• Based on increased clinician demand for mobile access to information, a mobile solution based on smartphone technology was needed (both a competitive imperative and market opportunity). This required repurposing the web-based application to fit into the small screen of iPhone and Blackberry browsers
