looking for a portable scanner

by d1guts / January 24, 2008 12:57 PM PST

I am part of an exclusively house-call medical practice. A portable scanner to "read" medicare and secondary insurance cards, DNR papers, and other documents patients have at home would be very helpful. Ideally, the scanner would be easily portable and would have onboard storage, as we are not currently using laptops in the field. We would have to sync to a desktop at the office at the end of the day.
Does anyone have any idea if such a device yet exists?

A fax machine. They would fax in all the documents.

Later they realized a laptop and scanner was the answer. Hopefully you'll work through this faster and not suffer their lessons.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
