Ottawa hospital jumps into the future with 1,800 iPads

Nothing makes me prouder to be Canadian than our universal health care, but the fact that a hospital in my own backyard is innovating with iPads has to come in as a close second.

The Ottawa Hospital has ordered 1,800 iPads for their staff, and even managed to have a local company develop the software they’re going to be using on a day to day basis.

The application’s primary objective is to get as much patient info into the clients hands while at the bedside. Doctors will have access to lab results, patient histories, and medication information in front of them.

The future is here, and The Ottawa Hospital is leading the way.

The app is fantastic, we had a sneak peak a couple of months ago, and it’s pretty obvious that the health care industry is in dire need of solutions like the one now being provided by The Ottawa Hospital.

We have some video footage on tap that shows the app off a little bit. We’re rushing the edit, and will attach it to the post.
