Just after finishing up my first iPhone application I got involved in the Healthcare industry with the implementation of an Electronic Healthcare Records (EHR) system for a 3 location practice. Additionally I came across the video below on a Doctor from Croatia putting the iPhone to use in the field including remote diagnostic procedures and CPR with his own invention.
This brought about the idea of building applications for the healthcare industry for the iPhone platform. The iPhone though did not present the ideal device for doctors to use because of its size and difficulty in entering information.
After the release of the Apple iPad on January 27, 2010 the idea of an electronic clipboard didn’t seem too far fetched, so I put together a mock-up of what the app on the iPad would look like and can be seen below.
