ELLICOT CITY, Md., Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- As healthcare spending undergoes intense scrutiny from the government and the American public, doctors and medical staff are beginning to evaluate their practice costs and prescribe new solutions. One area of growing interest is investing in PC-based medical equipment.
