iPads and prosthodontics 
When patients visit Dr. Jonathan Ferencz's NYC prosthodontics practice, they complete their admission forms on an iPad instead of paper. They use a stylus to sign forms, and staff emails the information into a database. The specialist also uses the iPad to share treatment options, including photos, with clients, and technicians review digital images on tablets to create dental prosthetics. Patients waiting for appointments can also use an office iPad to surf the Web.

Using tablets sends a message to patients, according to Dr. Ferencz. 'It conveys a subliminal message that this office is up to date technologically,' he pointed out, 'so they know that we're up to date in our dentistry as well.'

All very cool apps but...
THese are all good starts (I especially like the coud-based messaging system MyCareText which notifies authorized friends and family members about a patient's condition and alerts specific individuals if a doctor needs to speak to them). But what I really can't wait to see is a truly integrated platform that stores all my personal medical records and lets me connect me with all my various providers through a single pane of glass.
