Abstract: Portable computers, including handheld computers and laptop computers, are being implemented in home care as a means to deliver high quality, cost effective care. However, limited evidence exists to support assertions regarding the impact of portable computers on health system outcomes. The purpose of this retrospective chart review was to assess the impact of portable computers on the use of evidence based practice, client outcomes, and on the cost of care when use by home care nurses to manage clients with lower leg venous ulcers. A comparison of paper based documentation collected at Location 1paper with electronic documentation collected at Location 2EMR indicated that use of the technology may improve the use of evidence based practice and may reduce the cost of care. The use of a conceptual framework proposed by Powell-Cope, Nelson and Patterson 2008 to guide the implementation of portable technology in a health care setting is recommended.
