Blending social media and EHR – take a bite of the Apple

Consider the implications of sharing your clients work product with them so that they can keep a record until such time as such records are mandatory… say nothing of the marketing implications…..

Apple looks set to introduce social media features in the next release of the iPhone operating system, iOS 4.3.

Trawling through an early developer build, Apple Insider
says it’s  noticed a ‘Media Stream’ folder which contains another
folder titled ‘Photo Streaming‘. The implication is that Apple plans to
allow users to share their photos with friends.

“Photo Stream uploads and stores the last thirty days of your photos
on MobileMe and downloads them to all of your devices,” says the text in
iOS 4.3 beta 2.

It seems to make MobileMe Gallery’s photo sharing ability automatic, and includes the ability to assign privacy settings.

MobileMe is also the basis for a new Find My Friends feature,  possibly creating a location-based service like Foursquare.

The beta release also includes an experimental feature – not for
inclusion in the next version, it warns – which allows whole-hand
gestures to be used to move between multitasking apps or return to the
home screen.

Some are suggesting that this means that the next version of the phone – as well as the next version of the iPad – won’t have home buttons at all.
