How Apple accidentally revolutionized health care

Keith Speights, Motley Fool:

A study by Manhattan Research in 2011 found that 75% of physicians owned at least one Apple product. Vitera Healthcare’s 2012 survey of health-care professionals backed up this high number. The company’s study found that 60% of respondents used an iPhone and 45% owned an iPad.

The real revolution, though, has come from how physicians and other health-care professionals are using Apple’s devices. Mobile applications opened the door for clinicians to instantly access a world of medical information at the point of care.

It’s not just healthcare professionals, either – patients are able to get information faster thanks to iOS devices, too.
