Tablet PC Recommendations
HP Elitebook 2740P : We chose this tablet computer because of its accessories There are two configurations of this tablet being offered by HP. If you get the less expensive version, please make sure that you upgrade to a minimum of 2GB of memory (4GB is optimum).
You will need two label printers, one for Chart Labels and one for Specimen Jars. We recommend the Dymo LabelWriter 450.

We recommend a wireless network to take full advantage of doc2MD's entire feature set. See your local computer professional for assistance in this regard. We use Linksys equipment in our test lab; however we recommend that you rely on a reputable vendor in your area to install and ensure the reliability of your wireless equipment.
Insurance Card Scanner
The Ambir Technology http://www.ambir.com Simplex ID Card Scanner is the perfect device for scanning insurance cards or driver's licenses. The doc2MD software provides for the ability to scan the documents for future reference.
High Speed Document Scanner
We have reviewed many of the consumer-grade scanners with little overall success. We settled on a mid-range, high speed scanner/copier/printer manufactured by Sharp. Sharp scanners automatically save documents to a computer on your network which can then be reviewed at your leisure by doc2MD for filing. We recently had a practice scan over 16,000 documents into doc2MD using this scanner and it worked flawlessly — hopefully, your experience will be the same.
