HP unveils notebook, all-in-one PC, and display built for the healthcare market

HP has introduced a new range of devices aimed at the healthcare market. Designed to fit into clinical settings with a set of features to match, the lineup includes the HP EliteBook 840 G5 Healthcare Edition notebook, the HP EliteOne 800 G4 23.8 Healthcare Edition All-in-One (AiO), and the HP Healthcare Edition HC270cr Clinical Review Display (via ZDNet).

HP claims that the EliteBook 840 G5 Healthcare Edition is the first notebook "purpose-built for healthcare." The laptop features HP Easy Clean Software, which can disable input from the keyboard, touchscreen, and touchpad to allow the device to be wiped down with germicidal wipes while it's still on. Also included are RFID and biometrics for authentication, along with HP's Sure View, which can prevent others from reading what's on your screen.

The EliteOne 800 G4 Healthcare Edition AiO also packs RFID and biometrics for single sign-on authentication. There's also a dual-facing pop-up camera that HP says it designed to simplify patient registration.

The 27-inch HP Healthcare Edition Clinical Review Display also features an RFID reader, along with a USB-C connection that can supply up to 65w power delivery for connected devices.

All three devices are built to withstand repeated sanitization and to meet HIPAA requirements with their security and data protection features.

"Healthcare is a unique setting, and our customers are looking for a very specific set of technology solutions. The HP Healthcare Edition portfolio was designed from the ground up with the needs of clinicians in mind, resulting in a portfolio of industry-first offerings that include the world's most secure and manageable devices," said Alex Cho, vice president and general manager, Commercial PCs, HP Inc.

HP says that the EliteBook 840 G5 Healthcare Edition will be available in May, while the EliteOne AiO and Clinical Review Display will be available in June.
