On the day of Apple's tablet computer introduction, Chris Thorman of SoftwareAdvice.com has posted a survey asking"Which Tablet PC Will Rule the Halls of Healthcare?"
The results should be enlightening. I've seen early-adopting docs who use tablets as naturally as paper clipboards, but you can imagine how hard it must be to bring new gear into the examining room. There's been plenty of pushback to adding tablets into clinical settings: they're often hard-to-use, underpowered, proprietary and un-secure. Evangelists for electronic medical records and tech futurists are absoltely sure these things are the wave of the healthcare future, but that future has been on the horizon for decades.
