As it's nearly T-minus 5 hours until Jobs' keynote, the rumor mill is buzzing with a variety of predictions. Despite our excitement for today's announcements, here's a list of things we'd like to see arise as a *result* of WWDC:
Most recently, there has been a great deal of “buzz” around Practice Fusion's EMR offering. Upon initial pass, it clearly has a very user-friendly environment with a fair amount of customization. Two glaring downsides, however are:
"iPad is here." We get the exciting news from apple.com. iPad is amazing!Right? There is a trouble on iPad to my friend Jerry. How to transfer PDF to iPad? He can visit web link of a PDF file or view PDF format Email attachment directly. However, he can't download PDF files through safira. Here I will show you how to transfer PDF to iPad through Apps from Windows PC and view PDF on iPad.
I went to the Society of Interventional Radiology Meeting The other week and talked to the current editor of the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology. It was interesting. They were discussing trying to move forward into a more digital realm. I did not realize the the publishers do pay the societies for the journal material.. They were interested in what I had to say, and quite surprised that I brought this topic to them as they started discussing it. They say they will stay in touch, so maybe I will get to participate in their ongoing discussion.
It seems I have shaken the tree at the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR). My proposal to remove the DRM from the online version of the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology (JVIR) has cause a considerable amount interest. As excitement has mounted there is concern as to how the publisher will perceive it. I think that there are enough people interested in freeing JVIR so all other physicians can read online for free such that we may need to present the proposal next year officially..
I have been research the issues DRM, copyright, and content in the digital age. Essentially I am writing a term paper after a 25 year hiatus. YUCK! Other than grammar, the rules we were taught for the structure and form sure make the paper seem so stiff. Thus, I opted to focus ti more as a researched blog than a true "paper". Currently I am just slopping down my thought in a somewhat organized form. I hesitate to call it a first draft, as it is a little too disorganized. Maybe an alpha, definitely not a beta yet.
There is a nice post over at MedGadget that links to several other posts which muse on whether the iPad will be a medical device hit. They offer may cons against the iPad and point out some pros for its use.

Here is my synopsis of and thoughts on the of the points in the articles.
I just received an email from my friend in academics that is helping me present the DRM removal proposal. He has talked to several of the higher up members at SIR. So far it has been received with positive interest. Hopefully we will present our proposal at the meeting. The feedback I have received from people about the last post has been uniformly positive; but only one comment, come on guys, fill free to comment. If we can get SIR to remove the DRM restrictions from the online version of JVIR, then perhaps it will come off another and another...
Hi, I am an Interventional Radiologist in private practice. I am frequently frustrated when trying to look up medical information online. With the advent of the internet, one would think that information would be much more readily available. I frequently find that not to be the case. When looking up information during residency, I would do a Medline search in the school’s library and the school’s license would allow access to the journals. Now, out in the real world, I am often thwarted by a journal’s pay wall, whether I arrived via Google or PubMed.
I, like many of you I suspect, am anxiously awaiting Apple’s upcoming announcement, if the rumor mills prove accurate. In reading through Don McAllister’s post, I couldn’t help but be reminded of the massive utility an “iSlate” product would have during a typical office day.
Although I use my iPhone in nearly every encounter (coupled with an iMac in each patient room), the utility of having a larger, although still portable, device to use in interacting with patients will be a Godsend:
