How could it possibly be better than this?

We all got a sneak peek at Steve Jobs’ new toy today. What it means for health care.

Today, we finally got to see it — the new ‘iPad’ that Apple will release in April.

We just learned the official name today — and why, oh why, couldn’t we guess? But just because it’s actual name was a mystery doesn’t mean HIT gurus haven’t been awaiting the Apple tablet computer for months, eagerly anticipating its capacity to revolutionize health information technology.
