Its logical, those who work in IT department (in hospital or not) are somehow immune from several devices and wanting to try something new. If you work on their behalf perhaps, you will surrender yourself, for some, they use mobile devices like iPhone or iPad to kill their boredom, for doctors use it as their primary mediums., but those IT that are in line of FIXING these devices... they don't use this for leisure.. they work on it sometimes so they get paid. Like my friend Emine Ortega of, a former IT turns ipad case designer.m She had lot of experiences fixing several devices inside IT company.

Thanks for the nice post. We now have a several hospitals that are using our survey mobile survey app to collect patient satisfaction. The platform is an easy to use way to get hospitals and medical facilities with a secure, trusted way of providing feedback.

We see two ways to collect data being used:

Patients use their own mobile devices to provide that feedback.
Setup an iPad kiosk in the lobby, to collect the data.

From hospital check-in process to interactions with nurses and doctors, or room experience, the feedback is collected via a quick tap on the touchscreen of the device.
