ADP's AdvancedMD EHR includes a comprehensive set of cloud clinical and medical billing tools. In November, the company unveiled a new charge-capture functionality for its iPad app, which can also be used on the iPad Mini. The goal was to help physicians focus on patient care, and not procedure coding details.

Among the market forces that are driving the mobile EHR market, said Steven Zobell, VP of product development for ADP AdvancedMD, is the proliferation of incredibly simple, intuitive Apple iOS products. He said that while there are other good tablets out there, none can even come close to the iPad's market share among physicians.

Despite the company's enthusiasm for iPads, Zobell pointed out: "There are some functions that just do not make sense on a mobile device. If a physician wants to write two pages of documentation for a visit, a desktop is a better solution. Looking at a high-res scan, give them a 27-inch monitor."

re: 9 Mobile EHRs Fight For Doctors' Attention
While it's nice that EHRs are focusing on user experience and making mobile EHRs to allow doctors to use their systems easier, I'm still a little hesitent to recommend or use mobile platforms. It's sitll a little premature in the healthcare security game to be branching out into mobile platforms in my opinion.
