Okay, it’s now official  — I love my iPad!  I just needed some time to live with it and figure out how it would become a very useful part of my life.  Although my EMR vendor does not currently have an iPad app, they will be going live with their first version in January 2012, and you can bet I’ll be one of the first in line to download it.  But even without yet downloading their upcoming app, I thought I would share a few other wonderful observations on how my iPad has become a more integral part of my life just in the short amount of time that I have owned one.

First, it goes where others don’t.   My favorite place so far?  Catching up on my EMR-related blogs and news in the gym on the weekend.  Workouts go by in a jiffy now!  It’s a great way to multitask and stay fit.  After all, there aren’t enough hours in a day.

What’s more, an iPad is also way easier to read than a smartphone.  And more luxurious, too.  It’s probably a good idea to pamper your eyes a little more in 2012, if you aren’t been already.  So what are you still waiting for?  🙂
