January 27, 2010, the day iPad was announced, I said to a colleague that it would change the medical community in profound ways.
“The research found that 80% of doctors use smartphones and medical apps, and indicated that physicians are 250% more likely to own a tablet than other consumers. Udell went onto note that doctors are buying tablets in droves, because the devices offer an easy way to stay in touch with their co-workers and patients, while the infographic noted that 56% of doctors are turning to mobile devices to make faster decisions. Another 40% said they can help reduce the time spent on administration work.”
