 Hey everyone,

I am a primary care physician who was a software developer in my
previous career and have been busily coding away on a few apps to be
used by primary care physicians and providers in the clinical and
hospital environment.  Currently, finishing up work on an obstetrical
dating program and medical formulae calculator.

My question for you (if you are willing to share), is what other ideas
or needs have you seen in the clinic or hospital environment that an
Android smart phone could help with?  Obviously, I am not looking to
re-invent the EMR, but useful tasks like basic patient tracking,
rounding lists with "to-do" functionality, routine health care
maintenance schedules, immunization look-up or catch-up calculators,

Cheers, thanks for the help and so far it has been a blast developing
for Android.

I was speaking with my girl friend, emergency physician, what they
uses on their Palm are calculator for renal function, drug pediatric
dosing and ebook.

The problem with physician is that they could use a lot more the
technologies but they are still writing informations with papers and

So for know it could be fun to program those calculator + a way to
access data base informations following DICOM and IHE standards (ex:
videos & photos of patients and where they are in the hospital) with
ebook reader.

1. Launch camera app with an intent?

I can't find any intent which opens the camera. The closest I've found
is ACTION_CAMERA_BUTTON but that breaks if the phone has no hardware
button for the camera.

Anyone know?


2. TextView height not collapsing

I have TextViews in a View that are dynamically populated.  But even
when there's no text in them they still seem to take up space,
specifically height, even though the TextView and the parent have
layout_height set to wrap_content.  Coming from HTML land, I would
expect them to collapse.  Even if I set them to invisible, they still
take up room.  I've tried a LinearLayout and a RelativeLayout.  How
exactly do you get them to go away without removing them altogether?
