The Digital World of Medicine

17 06 2008

You have heard by now from the iPhone keynote highlights….Apple has secured 8 of the top 10 pharmaceutical companies for the iPhone.  They are deploying the phone across their company so everyone from field reps to lab doctors will be connected with information at the speed of digital…with real time updates.

Now here is a picture of how it’s hitting home with me right now…

I like the fact that the same computer who checked my wife in for outpatient surgery, is connected to the one that Docs used in the operation room…and the one that I took a picture of in the recovery room.  I see the day coming where a handheld device garners the power of every medical book written to help the Doctors practice the science of medicine.  I have a feeling Apple will be along side in a big way….
