CMIO titled, "Deploying iPads? Think of the big device management picture." Many healthcare organizations are deploying iPads, but people aren't entirely sure how healthcare professionals will utilize the Apple iPad in the clinical setting. Will clinicians merely utilize the iPad like a giant iPhone, or will they leverage the large screen to maximize the value of slate tablet devices like the iPad?
There's no doubt that the healthcare enterprise setting will evolve dramatically over the next few years. Physicians and nurses walking through hospitals won't be carrying paper records. We'll see mobile devices everywhere.
