Cows in the hospital

Filed under: medicine, punchbowl, security, technology — Matt @ 9:24

The Scobleizer describes Stanford University Hospital’s “cows”. Really, they’re mobile patient record access points, networked via WiFi, running Windows XP.

Generally, I’m cool with the idea; less handwriting is a good thing, as is more immediate access to changes in patient information. I am curious whether or not the computers are susceptible to the WiFi crack demonstrated at this year’s BlackHat conference.
