Already deployed everywhere from airplane cockpits to British grocery store shopping carts, hospitals stand poised as the next frontier for iPads to conquer.
As it turns out, hospitals - which are always in search of ways to slash costs while improving efficiency - are beginning to use iPads as lobby kiosks. With little more than a floor-mounted stand to prop it up, the iPad is being used as a highly effective, time-saving, and cost reducing method to facilitate patient check-ins.
One interesting use of the kiosk can be found in the Changi General Hospital in Singapore. The touch-screen kiosk there helps visitors and patients (and possibly new hospital staff) find their way through the facility.
For instance, Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston currently uses iPads as a means to gather basic patient information before the doctor visits with the patient.
