They’ve become one of the coolest technology products out there - but are iPads becoming the latest "must have" for doctors and nurses? One Canadian hospital certainly seems to think so. Ottawa General Hospital, located in the capital of Canada, has rolled out 3,000 iPads to doctors and nurses in a bid to take patient care "back to the bedside". In this Process Perspectives podcast, Dale Potter, CIO of Ottawa Hospital, explains the vision behind the roll out, discusses the impact the technology has had and explains why his biggest problem isn't user adoption - it's getting the devices out the door quickly enough!.
Editor's note: This podcast is a follow up to an interview we did last year with Cameron Keyes, Director of "Care Process Management" (the hospital's term for Business Process Management) at Ottawa Hospital last year (listen to the podcast here) on how his hospital has been piloting a patient-centred approach to BPM and early successes to date.
