    It is great that organizations are building applicaitons like this. One point I would like to make though is that the security in the iPad and PDA’s for heatlh information technology is still not compliant. They need to focus on this most of all. Otherwise it is just an expensive toy with serious vulnerabilities to electronic protected health information.
