I did a quick search at the iTunes App Store today for EMR apps and was surprised to find only nine apps listed for the iPad. Actually two of the nine were listed twice as both free and enhanced versions so you could say there are only seven.
I then did the same search for the iPhone and found 51 apps listed. Apparently most of those vendors haven’t seen enough demand to warrant re-writing their iPhone apps to benefit iPad users. Sure, you can use the iPhone apps on the iPad but seriously, there’s a lot more real estate on the iPad screen and it could be put to good use if the apps were re-written.
The current list of iPad EMR apps is:
- STAT ICD-9 LITE (Free) and STAT ICD-9 Coder ($29.95)
- Mediforms EMR Lite (Free
- Dr. Chrono EMR (Free)
- Allscripts Remote (Free)
- Capzule PHR ($9.99)
- STAT E&M Lite (Free) and STAT E&M Coder ($49.99)
- Patient Keeper (Free)
