iPad vs. Windows 8 Surface: Which is Better for Pharma?

The iPad vs. the Surface Pro. iOS vs. Windows 8. Apple vs. Microsoft. Have these two tech heavyweights elicited an internal debate within pharma companies over which device is better for their sales teams or is the choice a foregone conclusion? After all, pharma has already heavily adopted the iPad and they are not alone. According to preliminary data from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Tablet Tracker, worldwide tablet shipments have increased 142.4% year over year in the first quarter of 2013 with Apple capturing 39.6% of the market share of tablet operating systems compared to Microsoft’s 3.3%—however Android comes out on top with 56.5%. Of course, Microsoft has only recently ramped up its presence in this market with its release of the Surface RT and Surface Pro in the beginning of this year and we wouldn’t be having this discussion if pharma didn’t have some reservations over the iPad.

The answer:

 

“Right now the iPad has no competition within the healthcare market,” says Richard Meyer, Director at Online Strategic Solutions. “While the Windows 8 Surface does have some advantages, such as the ability to integrate with people using the Windows operating system, the very slow adoption of Windows 8 and the problems with the interface are going to continue to ensure that Apple is the first choice for healthcare professionals.”

Why Telemedicine's Time Has Finally Come | Forbes

Why Telemedicine's Time Has Finally Come | Forbes | Digital Healthcare Trends | Scoop.it

Telemedicine may just be the biggest trend in digital health in 2015. As a partner focused on digital health investments at venture capital firm AMV, I spend a lot of time crisscrossing the country chatting with leading healthcare providers and insurers about their technology needs. By far the area they are most interested in is telemedicine. For hospitals, expanding telemedicine is a way to cut costs while providing consumers with the convenience they crave. But the idea has been around for a while so why now?
