  • Physicians, hospitals, and clinics have been using tablets (without issues) for years now to keep records. Where have you been?

  • And I have been one them… users that it. The issue I have is whether the iPad, which is clearly not a tablet PC is up to the challenge of running our EMR, CPOE, Communications platforms…. from what I see and hear the answer is no… Help us out if you know better.

  • yes, but I need a device for the purposes of ” virtual office” practice, one that has LONG BATTERY LIFE, that I can DROP, ( not having a team of IT guys at my disposal) and runs a consumer oriented application and ecommerce business for cash pay. The possibility here is that the device enables 80% cost reductions for primary care doctors here. Oh, and the motion t5 costs upwards of 3 grand… so costs savings here are massive… ( call up Epic and ask about their price tag) What I am talking about is SAAS FOR PHYSICIANS, with no upfront licensing costs.
