Easy-to-handle and sturdy data acquisition equipment facilitates the collection of patient information, the error-free transfer of that information to EDP (electronic data processing) systems, and the making of sound, information-based decisions about necessary therapeutic measures. An example of this technology in application is the Timeboy offered by Datafox. This small, compact device is highly portable, enabling the user to gather data anywhere and making life easier for the patient as well. Time stamps are created automatically for each data entry. Timeboy can issue an acoustic signal to actively remind the user to enter data at the appropriate time. In addition to data entry via keyboard, bar codes and transponders can also be used to enter data.
Data evaluation by the physician is conducted fully automatically. This saves a significant amount of time and eliminates the possibility of transmission errors caused by faulty typing. Mobile telephone network GPRS communication even allows data to be transferred to the physician for evaluation without the need for the patient to make an office visit.
