I am within a whisker of purchasing the demonically gorgeous iPad Pro – providing it will operate properly in respect of a specific task.
We, at this medical practice, use Microsoft Journal, in which all our patients’ records are stored. I think it an excellent idea to switch to the iPad Pro for this purpose if Microsoft Journal can be run on it. Our current arrangement comprises a Microsoft Surface Pro, connected via Wi-Fi to our server, but I would prefer to use Microsoft Journal on an iPad Pro.
As I understand it, Apple has provided emulation facilities for some Microsoft programs. Fingers crossed that Journal will work on the iPad Pro. Dr. Georges S. Kaye Alex Blake says… Sadly, I think Microsoft Journal is part of Windows rather than a separate application or service, so you can’t actually put it on an iPad. However, I’m sure you could migrate your data to another app that could manage those records, but as I don’t know the specifics of your data it would be wrong to advise on something. Also, you’d need guarantees that all aspects of that data could be successfully migrated, which only speaking to the developers of a database app could advise on. You could consider alternatives to Windows Journal, such as Microsoft OneNote, which does work on Windows, Mac and iOS devices, although as OneNote syncs its data to the cloud there will patient confidentiality and security issues that you would have to investigate.
