Abstract

Summary:

The authors share their experience with the issuance of iPads to all residents, faculty, and physician extenders in their plastic surgical division. They found that these devices (1) optimized compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act by eliminating the use of paper service lists; (2) improved clinical efficiency; and (3) promoted resident education. They believe the use of these devices in residency is cost-effective when considering mitigating patient privacy risk and enriching educational value.
