EMRs and iPAD strategy

Austin Merritt, Chief Operating Officer of Software Advice, feels that EMR companies are slow to develop an iPad strategy:

"The medical software industry is far from supporting the iPad on a meaningful scale."
"... only a handful of other vendors (most notably AllScripts and Quest) have released iPad apps to supplement existing EHR systems".

I personally have been using RDP on my iPhone and have found it to work great for my Windows applications. In fact, we've been developing our internal Windows based applications with iPhone and iPad in mind, using these applications via RDP is similar in ease of use as native iPhone/iPad apps.
