re: Dell Targets Healthcare With Windows 8 Tablet
The fact that the Dell tablets will be running Windows 8 should help it launch a successful challenge over the iPad in the healthcare market. Software developers and health IT staff are more familiar with and find Windows environments to be easier to manage and implement. Lowering overall prices associated with the use of tablets will also help guide their success.
I believe, though, that the use of tablets in the healthcare environment is limited in that many EHR vendors havenG«÷t developed tablet friendly versions of their applications and even in those that do have support for tablets, many physicians would still prefer to use a laptop or desktop as there are many flaws in tablet versions of EHR applications.
