re: Microsoft Health App Prize Goes To Nova Southeastern
Windows 8 on windows tablets is a really terrible operating system that impedes basic computer tasks such as opening applications, using two applications on the same screen, cut, copy, paste and file management. All basic functions are hidden and there is absolutely no organization to the interface. The data entry errors it will create in a critical healthcare environment are incredibly dangerous.

I don't really see it being used much if at all in any practices I have been to. Most physicians prefer the iPad not only for its ease of use, but because of the range of apps that are constantly being produced for it. That and coupled with the fact that Windows 8 isn't really a great operating system and has been underperforming in the market itself, and I don't really see them getting much traction.
