ELIZABETHTON, Tenn.--Dr. Robbie Melton, associate vice chancellor for the Tennessee Board of Regents, Terri Blevins, director of practical nursing, and Patricia Roark, distance education coordinator at the Tennessee Technology Center at Elizabethton, pictured from left, demonstrate a new mobile medical iPad case designed by Griffin Technology to record blood pressure readings on an iPad or iPhone. TTC-Elizabethton will test the validity of mobile apps for recording heart rate, heart records and tracking one’s health by using these new products in conjunction with traditional training tools.

According to Melton, TTC- Elizabethton was selected as the model center for medical mobilization due to their strategic technology training plan and investment in using the iPads as teaching and training tools, providing iPads to all their faculty, and, most noteworthy, their openness to explore new ways to improve health care in Tennessee. "TTC-Elizabethton is the leading technology center for testing the quality and cost effectiveness of cutting edge medical mobile technology and apps for smart phones and tablets. Their leadership in this high tech area has helped to shape the design and utilization of mobile apps for teaching and training of LPN students nationwide," Melton said.
