Army buys thousands of medical computers


The Army has ordered thousands of notebook computers for medical use.

The Army’s Medical Communications for Combat Casualty Care (MC4) product management team will receive 3,750 Getac S410 semi-rugged notebooks, according to a Getac news release.

“The notebook computers will be used to help digitally capture medical treatment data in operational environments, enhance continuity of care, and enable a comprehensive lifelong electronic health record for service members,” Getac said. “MC4 selected the S410 semi-rugged notebooks as an integral part of its overall MC4 System for two reasons; its high performance and configurable feature set; and the long-standing relationship Getac has established as a trusted adviser to the organization.”

MC4 initially purchased 7,000 S400 semi-rugged notebooks in 2014.
