Allscripts recently announced a new mobile EHR solution that it has temporarily called “Wombat”. The vendor designed the product exclusively for the iPad, directly involving Apple in the development process. Wombat has created a lot of buzz and excitement among the company’s customer base of nearly 180,000 physicians.
