Today, computers help doctors do much more than search and apply for physician employment opportunities.
The iPad is advancing its electronic medical record (EMR) applications for its growing number of professionals in physician services.
“Physicians and medical professionals have been some of the earliest adopters and strongest supporters of the iPad, and many electronic medical record (EMR) vendors are responding to the increased demand by producing solutions that are iPad-compatible,” as reported in a recent edition of “Physician News.”
Medical software vendors are offering three software solutions to assist hospital physicians and allow them to maximize their efforts in providing excellent patient care: Native iPad EMRs, Remote access EMRs, and Web-based EMRs.
“Until more native iPad EMRs hit the market, we think physicians are best off using web-based EMRs,” said Houston Neal, Director of Marketing for Software Advice. “First, there are a number of viable web-based systems on the market, so physicians will be able to find one that has capabilities for their size and type of practice.”
“Physician News” had noted in its article that “these applications are new, meaning they lack many of the complex feature sets that on-premise or web-based EMR solutions offer. It will take some time for these systems to develop the full functionality of the more traditional systems. They most certainly will, but they simply don’t have all that the other systems can offer today.”
