iPad Adoption Increases in Healthcare

A quote from the article linked above:

More than 30 percent of physicians use tablet devices, compared to 5 percent of U.S. consumers, according to results of a study released June 16 by QuantiaMD, a mobile/online physician community. QuantiaMD surveyed more than 3,700 physicians for the study.

Although the next line of the article says it all. It says that only 20% of those physicians use their tablet in a clinical setting (such as with their EMR). Although, 65% expect to use a tablet to help their practice in the next couple years.

Of course, when we’re talking about tablets, we’re talking mostly about the iPad. As the previous physician social media infographic says that 75% of physicians have an Apple mobile device.
