Where and When to Buy an iPad 2 for EMR and EHR

iPad 2

Getting an iPad 2 to for your medical practice at this point in time might be a bit of a challenge.

I hear the iPad 2 is shipping in four to five weeks. It might take over a month buying an iPad 2 to for it to show up at your front door. Yesterday, Apple noted that online orders for all iPad 2 models would take “four to five weeks” to ship.

March 11 was when the second generation iPad launched.

Providers and doctors have three ways to get it:

  • You could buy the iPad 2 from an Apple Retail Store, good luck some have them some don’t. Call before you get in your car.
  • Find an authorized Reseller, again it might be worth calling to see if they have them in stock.
  • You could place an order via the Apple Online Store, just don’t expect to have it for around 4 weeks.

According to the site, The Loop, an Apple spokesman said sales were “amazing,” Meanwhile, an analyst believes up to 1,000,000 units of the second-generation iDevice might have already been sold.

Earlier today, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster put the number of units sold between 400,000 and 500,000.

According to Baird’s William Power, as quoted by Fortune, Apple has actually sold “roughly 1 million” iPad 2′s this past weekend.

Whatever the final number, the iPad 2 appears to be another winner for Apple.

All in all, it is the best tablet out, buy one for your medical practice, it is well worth it, just be patient.
