Feedback on Sun & UAB: A Success Story

I just viewed the Sun success story for UAB on You Tube at:

I'm really happy to see this success story of Sun at the Univ. of Alabama School of Medicine. However, it does bring up an interesting point.  I happen to talk about Sun Rays to a friend at Thanksgiving. He's the head of a psychiatric ward at a Bay Area hospital and his main concern about Sun Rays, PCs, or laptops in the examination room is that the doctor is not facing the patient.  I.e. the doctor is really working with the computer and the patient is secondary.  He felt that a touch screen tablet would be better since the doctor can hold it or place it between the patient and the doctor.

Are there any third party companies developing touch screen wireless Sun Ray appliances?  That would be cool.


Comments:

How about a Sun Ray on a movable arm, which could hang from the ceiling or such and be positionable between the Doctor and the patient? It could have a touch screen as well, although not as easy to use handwriting recognition that way. This is more easily doable today, versus the creation of a Sun Ray tablet.

Naturetech have a wireless tablet form factor Sun Ray (with optional RFID reader) out around about now.
