New iPad Increases Physicians' Access to Patient Data

The newest iPad model's Bluetooth feature may enable physicians to increase their productivity and clinical workflow, according to an InformationWeek report.

The iPad model allows healthcare providers to connect to Bluetooth-enabled medical home monitoring devices that collect patient data. Specifically, Bluetooth-enabled medical devices such as stethoscopes, blood pressure monitors and pulse oximeters can measure a patient's diagnostics and securely transfer the data to the iPad.

Data from these medical devices can also be quickly added to a patient's electronic health record or to a personal cloud-based health record such as Microsoft's HealthVault, either or which can now be monitored remotely by a physician with an iPad.
