Check out the new Apple iPad….

Seems like a very cool toy – not sure about it’s use in a ‘business’ environment. Thinking about getting the basic model to test out some of the functionality. Does anyone know of a Citrix app that could run on an iPad? If so, I could then access my EMR. I am sure that clinicians are looking at this device as it looks extremely portable. Would like to try using it with a voice recognition app – that would be very cool. Even though it was only released yesterday we already have CIOs blogging about it – click here

Here’s a link to the specs – click here

    You could access your EMR, but remember that the iPad is a mouse-less device and your EMR is probably designed around a really mouse-centric approach?

    Can you use it without drag’n’drop? Without a decent keyboard? On a small screen?

    All you need is a really cool hospital to put it in… http://bit.ly/9FCQoK. Seriously though, CircleBath is probably the most connected hospital in the UK, just what you need to make the data accessible to clinicians through these sorts of devices.
