Physicians who use tablets and an EHR system spend roughly 25 hours a week on their device conducting a variety of activities from banking to taking clinical photos to even directly communicating with patients, according to a new survey by AmericanEHR.

The study reviewed how physicians use tablet devices and draws comparisons between non-EHR users as well as Family Practice use and Specialty use. Study data was collected from 846 health practitioners (696 physicians and 150 allied health professionals) between October and December 2012.

Highlights from the survey data are examined in a new infographic by AmericanEHR, including the top apps used by physicians, frequent activities performed on a tablet and physician satisfaction with tablets.
