How Can the Use of iPads Change Healthcare? Critical care nursing has always been associated with advanced technology (Savel & Munro, 2011). We have gone from the hard drive cardiac monitors to touchscreen remote monitors. Medicine is now seeing advances into the technological world of mobile-hand held devices. Healthcare systems are researching and purchasing the tablet PC, i.e. Apple iPad. Our facility recently purchased several iPads to use the application Face time as a video translator for our American Sign Language clientele. The childlife department also has an iPad to use with our pediatric population for visual distraction during invasive procedure. The purpose of this paper is to explore the structure of data to information, knowledge and wisdom used in nursing informatics regarding the use of iPads in the healthcare arena and its advantages to patients, healthcare professionals and facilities.

Data There is a variety of databases available for researching an array of topics. Walden University provides a plethora of resources (Walden University, 2012). When looking at the question to research for this assignment, I started with the database, CINAHL, and used keywords: iPad use and nursing. The original search did not come with useful articles. The search was narrowed to iPad and patient, providing two pages of articles. The next database used and provided more useful articles was Google Scholar. The keywords used were iPad use in healthcare, iPad use and patient’s perception and iPad use in intensive care. It was surprising that the keyword iPad use in a pediatric population did not find any resourceful articles.
The databases were very user friendly. The option of using full text or not also changed the number of articles found for keywords searched.

...iPAD: Helt enkelt briljant – på alla tänkbara sätt. Eller? Ett citat taget ifrån Apples hemsida om deras populära produkt – iPad. Läser vi beskrivningen så måste vi ha den – det är ingenting som står i vägen mellan ”dig och det du älskar att göra” . Läser vi igenom produktbeskrivningen så finns det få saker en iPad inte kan tillförse sin konsument med. Man kan göra allt ifrån att spela spel till att regissera sina egna filmer och läsa böcker med mera. Ser vi till att köpa ett rött fodral till vår iPad, en så kallad (PRODUCT) RED, som samarbetar med Global Funds, så skänker Apple en del av pengarna till Global Funds i deras kamp mot AIDS i Afrika. Fråga: Att tillförse kundens behov i i-länder är mer viktigt än folks liv? Anledningen till att många företag, även Apple, väljer att flytta sin verksamhet till Asien är för att de juridiska lagarna ser annorlunda ut där än hemma i USA. När man på detta vis väljer att flytta över det egna företaget till ett annat land så måste man anpassa sig efter deras lagar och regler som oftast brukar tolerera mera än de lagar och regler i det egna hemlandet. Kina befinner sig nu i en i industrialistisk expansion som vi befann oss i mellan 17 – och 1800- talet. Skillnaden är att de har tillgång till bättre teknologi. Den ekonomiska aspekten gynnar Apples företag i andra länder i Öst genom att arbetsstyrkan är mycket billigare och arbetarna inte skyddas utav samma lagar som arbetarna i Väst. Enligt Jobber och Fahy påverkas företaget och dess...

...quickly changing industry landscape driven by healthcare reform (HCR) and an expanding web of strict government regulations. This includes gift ban laws, aggregate spend compliance/sunshine laws on both the state and the federal level, and diminishing physician availability because of HCR (i.e., 32 million new "covered" patients set to phase into the healthcare system). Pharmaceutical’s challenge to increase sales force effectiveness is becoming ever more real by the day. Now, many are seeing iPads as the means to that end. If medical sales representatives can’t get access to physicians, they aren’t likely to make any sales. By using similar tools and methods to their customers, medical sales reps stand a much better chance of establishing a strong relationship. The iPad “arms race” is all about time and relevance. The best iPad apps will allow sales reps to focus on their core job of selling and acting as subject-matter experts for a medical device or product. The tablet computers offer new ways to display product information or surgical-implant techniques, and help eliminate time wasted on issues that don't drive sales. Their quick start-up times mean the sales representative can jump into their presentations before doctors lose interest. No shuffling through papers or booting up a laptop. The animation and interactive features of the iPad lend themselves well to demonstrating pharmaceutical product benefits. The iPad is the perfect tool if you’re a sales rep,......

It is best to search product information, and read product reviews. After searching many iPads, Apple has a new iPad with excellent features. There are many companies who sell iPads for consumers today. Verizon, and T-Mobile offers iPads starting as low as $200.00. The new iPad is the third generation of its category. There is a Retina display, A5X chip quad graphics, and a five megapixel iSight camera. The iPad has HD video, Wi-Fi plus 4G. This iPad has the highest resolution display (Hachman, 2012). The highest resolution allows the consumer to know the distinct pixels in each dimension that can be displayed. The better the resolution, the better the display screen. The optics is advanced, and the pictures are in high quality. Likewise, there are many iPads available, but as a consumer the Retina display with high resolution has been highly rated.

...Module 1 group case: IPAD 1. With regard to the assertion that Apple is a marketing company rather than a technology company, assess the launch of the IPAD. Use both the information included in the case study and your own experience with Apple’s marketing tactics to illustrate your discussion. I believe that Apple is both a marketing company and a technology company. The reason I say that is because Apple does such a great job marketing its product that some customers don’t even realize that it is a technology company because they always see these amazing advertisings. A couple months ago I bought my first Apple product the IPHONE and now with this MBA program I got the IPAD as well, after using both these products I don’t think I will buy anything else that is not Apple. So they market very well and they deliver a great product that customers keep going back. They obviously are a technology company as well because they keep coming up with the best and newest innovations. 2. Which features of the IPAD create the most value for users? Which create the most value for Apple partners? Feature of the IPAD that creates most value to the user is the size of the IPAD and its 140,000 apps. The size of the IPAD is perfect because it is smaller than a laptop and bigger than an iphone. Perfect for both the phone enthusiast and laptop fanatic. As for the huge selection of apps I really don’t believe that people use even 10% of apps. 3. List the specific product......

...08 Fall 08 Fall Apple iPad Mini Review Apple it's been a huge part of my life since the beginning of high school. Sometimes I say to people "Apple is my religion". The iPad Mini has a great feel and superb speed. The crystal clear screen can entertain for hours. It also has the advanced A5 chip. The iPad Mini comes preloaded with the great iOS 6. The materials used to make the iPad Mini are perfect and don't feel cheap like other tablets. I just couldn't wait to get my hands on it. The recently released iPad Mini exceeds my expectation based on the convenience, simplicity, and amusement. The iPad was always my favorite thing I owned since it came out a few years ago. I was skeptic about the iPad size though. I always thought it was a little to big, so when I heard about the iPad Mini I knew it was going to be perfect. I ordered my iPad Mini from the Apple Store at Ross Park. I ended up picking black slate since before having a white iPad. The customer service at the Apple Store was great and I had my iPad Mini in no time. After opening the iPad Mini the feel of it was great. It fit perfectly in your hands while typing or reading a book. I was expecting it to be a little lighter in weight but it is still comfortable holding with one hand. The size of the Mini is just over a quarter-inch thin! It also has a 7.9‑inch LED-backlit Multi‑Touch
display. The size of the screen is just perfect for......

...I was thinking recently how inconvenient it was not to have a general term for iPhones, iPads, and the corresponding things running Android. The closest to a general term seems to be "mobile devices," but that (a) applies to any mobile phone, and (b) doesn't really capture what's distinctive about the iPad. After a few seconds it struck me that what we'll end up calling these things is tablets. The only reason we even consider calling them "mobile devices" is that the iPhone preceded the iPad. If the iPad had come first, we wouldn't think of the iPhone as a phone; we'd think of it as a tablet small enough to hold up to your ear. The iPhone isn't so much a phone as a replacement for a phone. That's an important distinction, because it's an early instance of what will become a common pattern. Many if not most of the special-purpose objects around us are going to be replaced by apps running on tablets. This is already clear in cases like GPSes, music players, and cameras. But I think it will surprise people how many things are going to get replaced. We funded one startup that's replacing keys. The fact that you can change font sizes easily means the iPad effectively replaces reading glasses. I wouldn't be surprised if by playing some clever tricks with the accelerometer you could even replace the bathroom scale. The advantages of doing things in software on a single device are so great that everything that can get turned into software will. So for the next couple......

...popular piece of consumer electronics. 300,000 iPads were sold in the very first day they were available, followed by a million sold just one month later on May 3, 2010. Sales of the iPad continued to rapidly climb to 3 million just 80 days after the first million. Prior to the launch of the iPad 2 on March 7, 2012 Apple had sold more than 15 million iPads. As of June 2014 over 200 million iPads have been sold. It is fair to say that the iPad has been one of the most revolutionary products available to this day in consumer electronics In relation to the demand curve the iPad has its variations whenever a new version of the iPad is developed and released. It is a tradition of die-hard loyal Apple consumers to always have the latest and greatest apple products. To compensate for this Apple has to have a large supply of their products whenever they release a product without leading to selling out and missing out on maximum sales opportunity. With that being said to this day apple is facing the largest drops in iPad sales for a few suspect reasons. As Lance Whitney from Cnet claims “… aside from enhancements in speed, thinness and display quality, tablets don't really improve all that much. For example, my wife still owns an iPad 2, which she purchased in 2011. It still works fine. It serves her purposes. So she feels no need to spend hundreds of dollars to buy the latest iPad Air 2. That's the challenge Apple faces with existing iPad owners -- giving them a reason to buy the......

...its first iPad on June 4th, 2010 and within days a security breach was announced. Hackers from Goatse Security firm tracked down about a 100,000 email ids of new iPad owners which included government officials, politicians, journalists, and other important famous people (IPad Security Breach, 2010). The question now arises is that what are the reasons that forced Goatse Firm from hacking into AT&T’s website? Goatse Security officials shared the email addresses and network ID’s to Gawker Media, LLC, after they informed AT&T and the vulnerability was closed (IPad Security Breach, 2010). Some expressed little concern over the security breach stating that it was “only email addresses” and not personal or financial information. The FBI doesn’t concur. AT&T responded quickly and has worked to mitigate the damage (FBI Investigating iPad Breach, 2010). Goatse’s Firm Objectives The following objectives might help us explain the possible factors that lead to the hacking of the AT&T’s website (Elinor, 2010). • The Goatse Security tricked the AT&T site into disclosing the e-mail addresses by sending HTTP (Hyper text transport protocol) requests that included SIM card serial numbers for iPads. This was because it contained serial numbers called ICC-IDs (Integrated circuit card identifiers) that are generated sequentially which helped the researchers to track down 1000’s of ids. • According to the AT&T spokesman the attack would allow the hacker to take some control of the iPad and......

...Healthcare Provider Websites Mich Kings Reading Area Community College HCM 311-70 Kenneth Bowman March 22, 2012 The new era of modern technology travelling at lightning speed, in just twenty-five years we’ve evolved from the days when a computer system took up an entire floor of an office building, to the evolution of the “smart” series – the iPad, iPhone, storing information in a “cloud,” etc. These new devices have made accessing technology all the more real, and instantaneous. While this may be a challenge for some, it’s heaven sent blessings for others. We’ve evolved from the pony express delivery system, to the instant messaging system. We’ve gone from landline home phone service, to utilizing wireless phone service. Without a doubt those who are hesitant to get on board, will be left behind. Technology has finally wormed its way into our healthcare system. The age of paper documentation, is rapidly dwindling, this is quite evident in large healthcare systems. Because of the expedient nature of accessing information, many companies, are now utilizing the internet as a means to tout their companies’ product and what they have to offer. Without a doubt healthcare is steadily becoming a full fledge business. As such, healthcare providers are now surging to the forefront, in an attempt to enable consumers become better advocates for themselves. Provider websites are now more user friendly. It’s to a company’s advantage to have a website that its consumer can......
