Update on eDC and eDC Gold Android handheld devices

28 June 2019

To enable us to begin a controlled pilot test of new eDC and eDC Gold Android handheld devices, in October 2018 we installed two new Remote Data Access (RDA) servers. We thank our customers for adding the new URLs on your local IT network infrastructure.

The feedback from the pilot testing generated a number of critical developments, including resolving errors and streamlining the user experience. These developments must be completed before we can deploy new Android devices. We anticipate the next pilot phase to begin by December 2019.

We are excited to be working with our new Supporting Technology partners, DXC Technology, to improve this free at point of service software for the NHS. Deploying Android technology will provide a more secure and reliable service for our customers, with additional benefits of enabling future development opportunities for hardware and software platforms.
