We previously posted about things to consider when selecting a personal mobile device for physician use with the Connect Care clinical information system (CIS). We also posted about a new arrangement between Apple and Alberta Health Services to provide enterprise support for clinicians using Apple devices with the CIS.
We are now pleased to confirm availability of a physician purchase portal for Apple devices. The available devices are selected for their fit to rounding and other workflows where personal computing can be most helpful. An exception is iPhones, since both pricing and support is better had through one's mobile phone and wireless services provider.
CIS-ready tablet and notebook computers purchased through the portal are backed by extended enterprise AppleCare support at no additional cost.
