Your Medical Information and New Technology
Most hospitals are currently figuring out how to use new technology to make the care they offer more efficient and of higher quality. The favored device of many hospitals is the iPad, a tiny notebook computer. There was a rumor that was circulated that calls on FaceTime (video chat application) were not encrypted (this could potentially mean that the information you told your doctor was not safe). Apple has responded to this rumor, and the good news is that your video chat with your doctor is confidential (read a blog post discussing this here).
