HP Going after a Piece of The Handout - Obama Stimulus Package for Health Care

HP is focusing in on the Health Care vertical with new programs for VAR's.

Obama's recently passed stimulus package includes $20 million for health-care infrastructure.

"We will make sure that every doctor's office and hospital in this country is using cutting-edge technology and electronic medical records so that we can cut red tape, prevent medical mistakes and help save billions of dollars each year," Obama said.

HP has also launched a new channel program to help its resellers grab a slice of the pie as well by creating a new business document management program for the health-care vertical.

The package is composed of HP hardware and software and is some cases carries its own SKU.

HP's new hardware is integrated with Singapore-based Aquarius Soft's ChartTab Medical Document software. ChartTab capabilities include adding patients and documents through a touch interface and securing charts to meet HIPAA requirements for private health information. In addition to scanning, records can also be e-mailed, faxed and printed.

"We're also approaching more traditional VARs who haven't made the jump into document management solutions yet," Brown said.

DOTC impressions - I have been through the basic training and introduction of this program/product. This solution is turn key and easy to use. The target market is small to medium, independent medical offices.
