Healthcare iPad deployment to approach 70% in 2011

InformationWeek, December 22, 2010

Results from a survey of nearly 950 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) members indicates that iPad deployments are accelerating in large part due to the mobile device's compelling point-of-care applications and uses.

Conducted October 26 during an online webinar cosponsored by HIMSS and BoxTone, a mobile service management (MSM) company, the survey's results were released earlier this month.

Every year at the InformationWeek 500 awards ceremony, editorial director Fritz Nelson does a little "stand up comedy" to kick things off. Here is a video replay of 2010's version.

Data showed that nearly 70% of the attendees were from hospitals or healthcare organizations with more than 1,500 employees, and 15% of attendees were executive-level staff or physicians.
