Key Quotes

“You’ve got people who already have two, in some extreme cases, three devices. We've got a pretty substantial technology investment as an organization. Should people get a third or fourth device? That is a question we're still answering.”
Nick Dawson, Administrative Director Community Engagement, Bon Secours Health System

“The iPad offers instant gratification in that there is no boot-up time. It means that the device is always ready. When you are walking down the hall with a doctor, you cannot have any barriers in your way. The iPad strips all of those barriers away.”
Bill Drummy, founder and CEO of Heartbeat Ideas
