Could a Mac Tablet change Health Care?


The device pictured above doesn't exist, it's an artist's rendition (courtesy of CrunchGear). However, there are rumors that a Mac Tablet computer might be in development. Now rumors are rumors and this isn't the first time this particular rumor has made the rounds. However, myself and others think that such a device would be a great addition to the present armamentarium of devices used in the healthcare setting.

Imagine a device with the ease of use of the iPhone/iPod Touch but with all the horsepower necessary to do everything a busy doctor needs. I've been a Mac fan for a few years now and I really wish I could integrate the platform completely, but alas my management system that runs my practice is a Windows only program.

My buddy Houston Neal at software advice has a really nice column on this whole idea, so follow the link and see what he has to say. I think you'll find it very interesting.
