Doctors Planning To Purchase Apple iPad

 In a recent study, 22% of clinicians surveyed said they planned to purchase an iPad in the next year.  Epocrates Inc.,a medical software provider surveyed more than 350 clinicians. It already provides its software for the iPhone and iPod and is the most popular medical program in the Apple app store.  Clearly the iPad's larger screen is far more interactive than a smartphone sized screen and offers greater image accuracy; a ciritical consideration in the medical sector.

Another study by the American Journal of Roentgenology, shows that these devices may be particularly useful for emergency radiologists, who may be able to use them for teleconsultation and emergency procedures. A total of 46% of physicians and trainees and 45% of radiologists use PDAs so it is logical to expect a transition to a more functional device like the iPad.  This is not just a consumer product! 

What do you think?
