Apple EMR

News came out this week about a Dell EMR, which is really just a branded version of eCW and possibly some other EMR companies. However, no doubt Dell’s ability to sell software is going to be a nice marketing tool for the EMR companies with which they interact.

Neil Versel posted about some rumblings about Apple joining the EMR fray. There are some EMR vendors that are optimized for some of Apple’s devices. In fact, I’ve even seen some action towards some iPhone specific EMR companies. Also, I think it’s reasonable to think that Apple may come out with an Apple tablet soon and healthcare has always been a tablets favorite market.

Either way, it’s interesting to see all these big brands joining in with others already in the healthcare space. Are they chasing after the $36.3 billion in EMR stimulus money?

  • The Star Micronics TSP800Rx Prescription Printer works with iTouch, iPhone, MAC, MS Windows (including Windows 7) – this is the practical printing solution for both Dell and Apple systems.

  • Thanks for the post John. It really sounds good for me. Because i am one of the medical transcriber using eCW for 8 of our clients. If dell have a emr like this that will be better for us to handle that. Because already we have experience in this.
