Hospitals Slow to Embrace Tablet Computers

Jonathan Mack of the West Wireless Health Institute says that less than 1 percent of hospitals are using tablet computers, such as iPads, and very few of these devices have apps that allow doctors to record their notes as they can on a desktop or laptop computer.
