The attached article from the American Medical Association indicates how much this physician gained productivity by using the iPad in his daily practices. This is good news that technology is helping with daily workflow in healthcare. However, there is no mention in the article at the use of an EMR on the iPad to check patient charts, place orders or print out discharge instructions. My suspicion is that a lot of the EMR apps available for the iPad are still limiting and lack al the functionality to perform these common tasks.
