iPads Fell Short of Residents’ Expectations, Study Finds

The researchers wrote, "[I]ntroducing any new technology can result in inflated expectations," adding, "Careful management of these expectations while promoting champions of use will be necessary to create an environment of successful" mobile health technology adoption.
