|Our colleague John Bramble
took the lead in resolving many of the technical issues related to this
project. John worked diligently with the staff at the American Academy of
Pediatrics to resolve the licensing issues related to the use of the Red
Book, a fairly expensive program. They seemed very unsure how to deal with
our need to reload the application at the beginning of each rotation.
|John developed a checkout
and loan agreement form and staff were trained to check out the devices on
the circulation system. We needed to be careful to account for all the
various pieces – like the stylus and the usb cable.
|And at the end of each
rotation, we needed to hard reset the devices to ensure that any private
information the students added to the Palm was removed before the start of
the next rotation.
