Database finds new home on Tablet PC

The Tablet PC now has a health care database management system on its roster of software applications. InterSystems Corp. of Cambridge, Mass., has conformed its health DBMS, Cach', to wireless connectivity because of growing demand by hospital employees.

'We're seeing increasing adoption of wireless applications in health care,' said Paul Grabscheid, InterSystems' vice president of strategic planning. He cited the ease of wireless use for routines such as dispensing medications to a series of hospital rooms. InterSystems claims to have 65,000 Cach' seats at the Defense Department.

The DBMS uses a caching protocol with built-in performance and recoverability measures. Cach' runs under Compaq Tru64 Unix, Hewlett-Packard HP-UX, IBM AIX, Linux, Microsoft Windows, OpenVMS and Sun Solaris. A multiserver license is $450 on the Veterans Affairs Procurement of Computer Hardware and Software 2 contract.
