iPad Becoming Leading Choice for Hospital Kiosks
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.

My tech friend at the hospital i work at said they'll never get ipads in our hospital because Apple will violate HIPAA with all their icloud, backup, nonsense.
