Some doctors are trying a mix of high-tech gadgetry and healthcare. They are putting information for their patients on iPods.
Doctors see it as a good way to reach younger patients; a group that does not always see them for medical advice.
It is a high-tech and efficient way to get information out to folks who never leave home without their iPod on them.
Dr. Todd Dray of Kaiser Permanente said, “We're trying to reach out to patients so they can have their health information to go. We're hoping it will be technology to promote our patients health.”
Right now there are just a handful of doctors using podcasts around the country, but the idea is bound to get more popular as more and more people buy iPods.
