I am looking to purchase a tablet; something that would work for me across the board (EMR and billing) at any hospital (I'm waiting for a match) and hopefully for a private practice as well.

I know that Meditouch makes some of the best programs for tablets for private practices and I know that their programs are compatible with ipads and samsungs. But what I am really looking for is a tablet that would be compatible with any EMR software at any program I get a match at.

I was told that ipad is compatible with various EMR and billing software but I do not like the ipad. I prefer the samsung tablets.

Any ideas or recommendations? Or does it all depend on the EMR software that individual programs use?

Thanks guys.

You are way ahead of your time. Most major EMRs are web based or require that you download a client. EMR companies are not catering to the 1% of users that fire up an EMR on their tablets while watching Netflix. They're after the 99% that use desktop computers in the office or hospital. Of course there are smaller companies that go after the smaller piece of the pie. IMO if you want to cover the most ground your best bet would be a windows 8 tablet! Good luck! :)

I have been looking into drchrono. They have a nice ipad interface, psych templates and they do billing for a fee. I still have not gotten specifics on expense of the billing service however.

From I security side, there are potential problems with Android devices. As such I would not be surprised that institutions will opt for iPads. That is the direction my institution is leaning.
