Apple Tablet PC Poll for Medical Professionals

Join Our Mailing List

About Ambulatory Gadgets in Medicine

By Chris Thorman

Hello Dr. Marcinko and all Medical Executive-Post readers. I hope you’re doing well.

The Big-Breaking News from Apple

You’ve probably heard the news that Apple is set to release a new tablet PC today. That got us thinking here at Medical Software Advice about whether or not this new device will be the first tablet PC to break through in the healthcare industry.

A Short Survey

So, we’ve created a short survey (8 multiple choice questions) about what tablet PC features are important to healthcare professionals. I’ll use the results from the survey to determine which tablet PC is best positioned to rule the halls of healthcare. Even if you’ve never used a tablet PC, we’d love to get your opinion on what features are important.



Thank you in advance for your survey participation.

  2. A right-sized EMR?
    Tablet PC + Microsoft Office OneNote

    Here is a related external post from Microsoft’s worldwide health senior director William Crounse MD on tablet PCs, following the iPad release of Apple. It’s worth a read:


    I’ve not met Bill as our paths have never crossed; yet. But, I was fortunate to have Ahmad Hashem MD PhD, his predecessor at Microsoft write the Foreword to the second edition our successful book: Business of Medical Practice [Profit Maximizing Skills for Savvy Doctors].


    For the third edition-in-progress, the HIT chapter is being penned by our own ME-P thought-leader Shahid N. Shah: http://shahid.shah.org/

  3. Hi Dr. Marcinko and Chris,

    Interesting survey.

    For all the things they got right, Apple still has a few things to learn if it wants to become the healthcare industry’s tablet leader. Here’s why?


    In summary – still not ready for healthcare prime-time!


  4. Here are 10 more credible takes by the healthcare industry on Apple’s new iPad




  5. Hi Chris,

    Here is an essay on why the iPad matters in healthcare.

  6. MSFT

    Does anyone know something about the new MSFT Windows Phone 7 smart phone series?

    MSFT is clearly going after Apple, Google and RIM. Next up, mobile gadgets in the healthcare sector, no doubt? Just ask Peter Neupert from Microsoft or Alfred Spector from Google.



  7. iCloud hack is bad news

    “The iCloud Hack Is Bad News For Apple’s HealthKit – Before we can trust Apple with our medical data, it will need to come up with much better answers than the ones it has provided on the celebrity photo-hacking incidents, which it attributed to ‘targeted attacks’ on the individuals’ usernames and passwords.”

  8. Apple Rolls Out the Health-Enabled Apple Watch

    In a much-hyped event, Apple Inc just rolled out its new smartwatch that’s able to collect health data and share it with providers through the tech giant’s HealthKit app, which has drawn interest from major healthcare players such as the Mayo Clinic and Memorial Sloan-Kettering.

    The device will be able to track medical and fitness data, including pulse rate, distance, and an accelerometer. That ability to track data will pair with its new HealthKit app, which will debut with the new iOS operating system. The app can aggregate health data from various wearable devices, and store and send them to providers or other entities as the consumer desires.

  9. Apple’s ResearchKit is a ‘Game-Changer’ for Medical Research

    Apple just introduced new software that will turn every iPhone into a sophisticated medical diagnostic tool.


    ResearchKit will allow researchers to greatly expand every medical trial by immediately reaching potential study participants directly through their iPhone.
