We sat down with Paul Brient, president and CEO of PatientKeeper Inc., a company that's been developing apps for 11 years -- first for Palm PDAs, then for smartphones -- and discussed the latest wave of mobile deployments in health care, also known as mHealth.
From his perspective as a software developer, Brient offers an interesting take on the iPad revolution happening among physicians. Like a gambler standing at a roulette wheel, he must choose the platforms that PatientKeeper will support (for instance, it recently stopped supporting Palm OS apps) and for which it will develop apps.
Which tablets -- and which operating systems -- is he betting his company's resources on? Tune in to part 1 of this two-part podcast find out whether it's Windows, Google Android, Apple iOS -- or all of the above.
