According to HP, 45 percent of ransomware attacks affected healthcare organizations and 2018 was a record-breaking year for healthcare data breaches. The company will be offering a super-secure EliteBook 840 G6 designed specifically for healthcare institutions to alleviate some of these concerns.

Unveiled in April, the EliteBook 840 G6 is a relatively minor refresh of last year's EliteBook 840 G5. It offers updated software and security features in an otherwise identical chassis to the previous generation. Now, HP will be retrofitting the system to the EliteBook 840 G6 Healthcare Edition designed for hospital use.

The main differences between the Healthcare Edition and the "regular" edition are almost all under the hood. The Healthcare Edition will be certified to meet EN/IEC 60601-1-2 standards to operate near patients and medical devices, have optional dual-band RFID and FIPS-201 compliant fingerprint reader for more secure login, and have HP Easy Clean 2.0 that will disable all keys and touch features with the push of a button for cleaning purposes.

Other than the above, the Healthcare Edition will carry all the software and hardware features of the standard EliteBook 840 G6 including up to the Core i7-8665U with optional Sure View Gen2. HP has not announced exact launch dates, prices, or additional sizes other than this 14-inch model. If successful, however, we can see HP expanding the Healthcare Edition portfolio to encompass the 13.3-inch EliteBook 830 or 15.6-inch EliteBook 850 in the near future.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
