Is the iPad already popular with Physicians?

A medical software company did a survey of over 350 physicians to gauge their interest in an iPad.

The results?

  • Close to 10% plan to buy the iPad now.

  • Roughly 13% plan to buy it within the year.

  • 38% are looking for more information before they buy.

Me? I have my doubts.

The iPad touch, as of right now, does not have the ability to EPrescribe or run an electronic medical record system.

There is currently one EMR company working on developing an EMR program that will reside within the IPAD, but it is not yet available.

I find it hard to believe that an iPad will have the capacity to run an EMR system.
