I am hoping to find more information from someone who knows something about using remote software such as Log Me In or GoToMyPC and the internet or (I just learned there is a Windows remote app) to access a host computer and run programs from that computer on a tablet or a convertible/hybrid. I have one license for some expensive software i have to use for my business and because of the expense plus the sensitivity of the data and the fact that I am in healthcare and have to be HIPAA compliant, I am trying to figure out what hardware I need to buy to accomplish this task. Currently the software is on my 13.3 Sony Vaio Windows 7 laptop, which is ok for now. That computer is developing a few issues and is 3 years old. Because my livelihood depends on what I do with this computer, and because I am currently carrying it back and forth every day, loaded with critical and sensitive client data, I need to figure out a different strategy. I have been advised to get a new desktop computer to stay at home with all the programs and databases on it and a Surface Pro or something like that to use at the office to not only remote into the desktop but also to use for handwritten notes, photo marking up, and regular MS Office tasks. I am wanting also to convert PDF forms I have on my website to online web forms that people can fill out and email to me securely and then I can have them digitally sign in front of me (informed consent), hopefully on a tablet or hybrid that has pen input. I would then like to be able to save that whole form and attach/paste it into the main database, but not on the secondary device. The primary device being the home/desktop computer which has the clinical documentation and billing programs and the databases. And the secondary device being the one at the office I am using to retrieve the secure email and capture the signature on a pen-enabled screen. Or at least it is one of the secondary devices...IDK!!! The photo task I would need to do is taking a shot, marking it up, and also sending it to the database. Can anyone help me figure out what I will need to consider to do all of this? Desktop, laptop, tablet, hybrid...how many MS Office installations I will need if I use One Note and Word on one computer and Excel and Publisher on another....My head is spinning.
