Every now and then I hear that the iPad and iPhone are making a positive impact on the medical field. Apple has taken the time to report how one doctor uses it in the field, along with one of Apple’s beautiful trademark video demos to promote the use of iDevices in the hospital.
“It’s tremendously important that medical facilities have the latest technology,” says Dr. John Perlin, HCA’s Chief Medical Officer. “It makes all the difference between good care and not-so-good care. It may even be the difference between life and death. Apps on iPhone and iPad put the information needed for medical decisions into the hands of decision-makers.” »
This video and others like it are available at Apple’s Business Section on Apple.com. Perhaps you haven’t heard or seen this part of their website. You are not alone, because it is not obvious in the site’s navigation.
I visit there occasionally to see new content like this story on Apple technology in the hospital. The business section of Apple.com has been around for years, and is a great place to explore how Apple products used in a corporate environment—not just by doctors, but lawyers, small businesses, and other industries.
Dr. John Perlin’s story and others like it are a testament to Apple’s relevance not only to people looking for great media, music, and everyday “life” iDevices. An iPad has its place as a tool for professionals.
