Somewhat old news: doctors love iPads. This of course is no surprise. Doctors are among heavy adopters of the iPhone when it first came out too.
It is easy to dismiss doctors, as a group, as laggards in information technology adoption. They prefer paper over computerized medical records, resist computer assisted diagnostic tools, and still carry pagers. But when you think about it, the technology requirements for doctors are quite simple: it must be reliable and it must save time. Most enterprise IT innovations in the past 20 years have made life more difficult for the direct users of those technology -- just ask anyone who are forced to use Oracle to fill out expensive reports, but the efficiency gain at the backend (e.g., centralized expense reports that can be analyzed) makes the adoption cost effective at the organization level. The problem with healthcare, and doctors in particular, is that doctors perceive (right or wrong) that their time is the most precious commodity in the whole value chain. So what if the technology makes backend operation more effective, doctors cannot be told to adopt it if the technology requires them to do just a little more.
So, what the iPhone and iPad taught us is that health IT solutions MUST have a strong focus on user interfaces that actually save time, in order to be adopted by clinicians.
