JRAd consulting, Inc.
When the Newton family of handheld computers hit the
market, we at JRAd (pronounced "je-rud") consulting saw the
potential for such a device in the practice of medicine. We
have since been striving to create packages that would
lessen the burdens of Medicine, and our motto from day one
has been "if you want it done right, do it yourself." Our
platform of choice has been the Newton MessagePad family of
Personal Digital Assistants. Nothing yet compares with
regard to speed and utility, and with the release of the
2000, it appeared that Apple Computer had created a
handheld computer that would surpass its competitors for
some time to come.
With the demise of the Newton, the hope for what we saw
as the future in medicine was gone. Since that time, we have
been searching for a platform upon which to focus our
efforts. Unfortunately, no handheld meets the needs of the
healthcare community as well as the Newton did. We continue
to develop for and support the Newton, but are currently in
limbo in regards to developing on another handheld platform.
We have taken this opportunity to expand our horizons by
working on multiple solutions for desktop computers. Please
visit our Products page and see
some samples of what is to come.
Custom packages can be produced by JRAd consulting on a
contract basis. Emphasis is on medically related packages,
but other projects have been and can be undertaken as well.
We have programmers that have experience working with the
Newton handheld computer, FileMaker Pro, 4D database
systems, and OneClick for Macintosh. Please contact us at
for further information.

plug-ins for Palmedic can be found on our web pages.
