The iPad is not IP 65 0r IEC 60601 certified, so how does the professional clinician protect the patient from their mobile devices? What policies should the institutions have? Do you think that this is a more immediate discussion than how the FCC will regulate medical apps on mobile tech? What about the visiting nurse and the ACO-PCMH home care market?
