20% of physicians use Epocrates on iPhone = 175k physicians

Physicians and clinical workers ambulate.  They are mobile. 
Many Computers - No desk. 
Multi-tasking environment
Except when face-to-face with patients.

Physicians are information "Gluttons"
Medical references and Patient Data.

Healthcare delivery is a team effort. The Physician needs to be in touch.

The Appeal is a device that provides voice and data in one device.

All smartphones do this - But iPhone is doing it "right".

Large screen, lots of memory, push notification

Push Notifications are authenticated and encrypted. Works over cellular or WiFi.

iPad - Large screen and large battery - no need to recharge during the day unlike many laptops.
