At Apple’s ‘Let’s Talk iPhone’ keynote, which is currently still in progress, Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, announced that over 80 percent of hospitals in the US are now testing or piloting the iPad.
We have written in detail about medical schools implementing iPad programs into their curriculums, but I am personally surprised by this high percentage.
We’ll do some digging into how Apple got this number later in the week.

A few medical schools implementing an iPad curriculum:

  • UC Irvine
  • University of Minnesota
  • Stanford
  • University of Central Florida

    • “We’ll do some digging into how Apple got this number later in the week.”

      As I would expect you too. My money says there is little if any evidence to support this number as is usual with Apple’s claims.

    • If I remember well, he said 80% of the top hospitals in the US. So it is up to them, I guess, which are the top hospitals.

    • You can add the University of Arizona to that list

    • Oh please, what nonsense. This would only be true if they include those occasions where a physician or two bring their personal devices in.
