Ipads are the cool new toys for doctors and patients to play with ! They are flashy and fun to use, easy to carry, make a fashion statement - and all the clever medical apps on ipads make them useful too.
However, ipads are costly - and not easily available either.
Far more important - and much less expensive than iPads for fixing healthcare are iPills - prescriptions for information therapy ! These are easy to prescribe - and easy to dispense as well !
Not only should doctors routinely prescribe iPills at the end of each consultation, patients should insist that their doctors give them iPills as well !
