Medicine using Apps and iPads - This from the NY Times

This morning in NY Times is a nice article about the changing times in the medical field, Doctors using iPhones and iPads.

One app mentioned in the article was Evernote - my favorite note taking app/software. It cuts across all platforms very well and with the ability to take written or typed notes, take pictures (as well as annotate them), make sketches (Skitch - an Evernote product), take audible notes, and search all your notes. It is a great tool.

You can actually get Evernote for FREE to get started: http://www.evernote.com.

I find Evernote, for me, to actually be better on a Windows PC and my Android phone. On the iPad it functions slightly different and is not quite as well organized as it is on the Android or PC. I guess if you use the iPhone or iPad more than I do it is easier.

Read: Redefining Medicine With Apps and iPads - The Digital Doctor - NYTimes.com: it brings up these changing times. I will have to send this to my doctor although he has been using some of these tools already.
