Over the last five years, tablets have made their way into almost every medical practice in the U.S. In fact, an ongoing Manhattan Research survey found that physician tablet adoption rates spiked from 30% in 2010 to a surprising 72% in 2012.
Any electronics salesman could tell you that the mobility, instant Internet access and note-taking capabilities featured in most tablets are reason enough for doctors to purchase one for the practice. However, this would be cutting tablets’ value short.
Tablets posses an abundance of features that can make treating patients easier for physicians, and, in turn, allow them to make better clinical decisions.
Today, let’s take a look at the emerging medical uses for tablets and how they’ll help you become a better physician.
Doctors are notoriously bad at business, as we first wrote about in an article titled, The Business Side of Healthcare – Why Most Doctors Are So Bad at It. But it does not have to be that way.
One area that is absolutely critical to your success as a healthcare organization is building trust with your patients, both existing and new ones.
So how do you build trust?
It starts by blogging, article writing, posting, or whatever you like to call it. Need help? We have created a short guide that will help you get started.
Why is blogging important?
Simply put, blogging is a funnel that drives patients to your website, and ultimately revenue in your pocket. If you blog multiple times a week/month, not only does Google place a value (authority on your site) and ranks you higher then your competitors, but other websites will publish snippets of your content (Give you attribution).
If the website has viewers that match your practice’s demographic it can be very lucrative by driving 1000′s of viewers to your website that could potentially become patients.
Statistics on blogging:
61% of consumers have made a purchase based on a blog post that they read.60% of consumers feel positive about a company after reading its blog.70% of consumers learn about a company through its blog versus ads.

Technology is such a major part of our lives now that it would be safe to say that it has gone beyond the merely functional to becoming part of who we are.
We sometimes need to remind ourselves of its purpose. When we look at the development of the earliest tools and machines it is very simple – to allow us to do things more efficiently.
Technology in the context of the health service it is an interesting mix. On one hand, there is perhaps no other profession where the emotion and compassion that only a human being can give, is so important. At the same time, technological advances have allowed us to do things that would have been unthinkable 60 years ago and opened up new possibilities for the way healthcare professionals work and deliver care.
Today, NHS England has invited NHS organisations around the country to bid for part of the £100m Nursing Technology Fund. This is a real opportunity to expand on the many examples where technology is making a real difference in the health service. It is our role at NHS England to ensure the £100m is well spent and gets maximum value for staff, their patients and the tax payer.
