The agreement provides for an option to extend, and relates to Handheld’s existing range of tablets as well as future innovations. Saab has already integrated Handheld’s Algiz 10X rugged tablet with Paratus, their emergency care modular information system which has been deployed in ambulances in Sweden. Saab also has fitted SITHS smart card readers onto the Algiz 10X rugged tablets. SITHS (Secure IT for Health Care) uses a two-factor electronic authentication protocol and meets current standards for National Quality Registries in Sweden.
