Healthcare Technology: Post-Surgical 'Telerounding' with iPad

Last week we told you about the first hospital every to live-tweet during surgery, and this week, it's more on HIT.

According to a Fierce Healthcare article:

"Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit is using the iPad to enable post-surgical 'telerounding.' Doctors can video-chat with patients, view scars, check for symptoms of pain, and other issues."

This isn't entirely new... many healthcare providers have been using wireless laptops that could be transported from room to room. However, introducing the iPad into the mix shows that some are ready to take it to the next level!

How is your business using technology to improve the customer's experience in everyday situations?
