There's an App for That!

Did you know there are 17,000 medical applications available for download from major app stores for the Apple iPhone and iPad, and for smart phones and mobile computers? Technology is exploding and physicians are starting to use an iPad and other devices to track their patients through EMR.

Has anyone transitioned their credentials committee or MEC to use an iPad for committee work? If so share your best practices with other members.

We have transitioned our MEC and Credentials Committee to go completely paperless since January. They all received iPads and all of the information is provided on their ipad. They are obligated to bring the iPad to the meetings. They love it and the information is current because I could make changes right up to the last minute and not have to produce paper.
