While Dr Hussain from iMedicalApps makes some good observations in his report does not mean that the iPad Mini is a good fit for all EMRs. Based upon experience a lot of EMR’s are designed to be interacted with by a keyboard and mouse which makes a touch device near impossible to utilize. The form factors of devices are finally getting there for physicians and it is now time for EMRs to be developed for devices in the common era.
Every week there is another blog wondering if this tablet or that tablet is right for healthcare. In most cases, the blogs are never asking how many of the EMRs are ready for a particular tablet or if the EMR is tablet ready at all. Making EMR streamlined and programmed for mobile devices should be the priority of EMR vendor and being demanded by physicians.
