Is Apple Inc. making its first foray into the health care space?

Posted Jan 12 2010 1:11pm

An interesting piece about Apple Inc. purportedly visiting Cedars-Sinai Hospital in California to gauge the interesting and application of tablet computers within health care settings. If true, then this would indicate the first (to the best of my knowledge) company sponsored move toward health care solutions for the company. Apple has traditionally focused on the desktop, education, and consumer electronics industries.

In the past, I wrote about what ehealth (and health care) can learn from Apple, Steve Jobs, and Macworld. Hopefully, Apple can live-up to the now famous Steve Jobs challenge of “changing the world” instead of making sugared water. Making iPhones, iPods, and other consumer electronics devices is great, but imagine what could happen if Apple were to come and challenge the existing players within the health care space…
