Thinking about springing for the new iPad? has published an insightful article about how the new hardware in Apple’s latest offering can benefit physicians and other health care professionals.The article highlights an increased screen resolution as a benefit to medical imaging and the addition of a voice dictation feature to the on-screen keyboard as a useful tool in many areas of health care practice. A last feature with significant potential in mHealth and telehealth is the upgraded camera and the ability to shoot video at resolutions up to 1080p HD combined with the optional high-speed 4G/LTE cell network connectivity.

This new device has a great deal of potential for health care education and practice.
