We are very pleased to announce the winner of the draw for a new iPad in the recent ASCO AmericanEHR Partners EHR satisfaction surve. Congratulations to Dr. Julia Smith. Dr. Smith is one of nine doctors and seven midlevels in an academic hospital-based hematology/oncology practice. The majority of her patients have breast cancer, but she also sees other general solid tumor oncology patients. Dr. Smith is board certified in hospice and palliative medicine as well as medical oncology, and has been a hospice medical director for over 20 years.
How does she intend to use her iPad? According to Dr. Smith, “I’m still learning to use the device and plan to have my daughter give me lessons when I visit her this weekend. I’m thinking of using it as a source of patient education websites that I often wish to have during visits but that take too long to open from our EMR (!). The other fun use will be to carry pictures of travel and my daughter’s wedding next May.”
