Why take the Initiative?
- Ability to access full color imagery, charts, x-rays, test results and charts on the spot.
- Patients have always complained about the lengthy process of signing in, filling out registration forms and taking surveys. While forms are always necessary to fill out, the iPad allows the process to be completed and consolidated from one source.
- The iPad can also make a doctor infinitely more effective and address the very real concerns of patients who can receive real-time audiovisual presentations –– helping to reduce medical vernacular into every day laymen's terms.
- Select hospitals are already using the iPad for medical documentation and retrieval. Overall, physicians and medical billers are overwhelmingly enthusiastic about its potential applications
- Impressive battery life for the iPad - up to 10 hours of use on a full charge
- Screen size: need to zoom is limited because of the larger screen size. The larger screen size can also help physicians see more detail in medical images such as X-Rays or MRIs. Therefore, if primary applications for the device will include CPOE (computerized physician order entry), patient record keeping, or medical image viewing, then the iPad may be the ideal selection.
- Rich user interface, native support for eReading, strong graphics (color) capabilities, ability to use various medical calculators (there are a slew of them already in the AppStore) and numerous other medical apps (most of these are iPhone apps and will need to be updated to take full advantage of the iPad’s larger 9″ screen) provides an incredibly rich ecosystem/learning environment for medical students. Nothing else comes close – a slam-dunk for Apple.
- Created to foster patient-clinician interaction. At bedside, a clinician has the ability to review with a patient a given treatment, say a surgical procedure, prior to the operation showing rich anatomical details (e.g., a patient’s 64 slice color enhanced 3D CAT scan), potential risks, etc. Heck, one could even show a video clip of the procedure right there on the iPad.
