Since its launch in 2010, iPads have been utilized by healthcare professionals. The iPad has greatly changed health care in various ways since then, particularly through the use of iPad EMR and EHR apps.

iPads allow healthcare professionals to improve patient care and documentation workflows, and increase patient engagement. It also allows physicians to quickly access a patient’s records and various medical tools. iPads are also sized perfectly for physicians, particularly the convenient lab-coat-pocket-sized iPad mini.

The adoption of iPads and other mobile devices in healthcare has astounded some researchers. Results from the 2nd Annual HIMSS Mobile Technology Survey indicated that 80% of physicians use some sort of mobile device daily for healthcare purposes. These mobile devices include iPhones and iPads, and various other smartphones and tablets. The study also found that about 65% of physicians have used apps to access patient records or patient lab results.
