Personal digital assistants (PDAs), have now reached critical mass, and nearly 25 percent of physicians use them on a daily basis. If you haven't implemented this technology into your daily professional life, you might want to consider what these incredible electronic boxes can do for you and your practice. Now it is possible to have all of these functions included in a 3-inch by 5-inch PDA that fits into your pocket. There are software companies that offer more clinical and management PDA applications than most of us realize are available.
