“Over in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, a group of more than 60 doctors have revamped their mobile phones and iPads for use in emergency departments across the region with a little help from a familiar application: the popular Box.net file-sharing services,” McMillan reports. “Using Box, they’ve built a new system that lets them share procedures, journal articles and — perhaps most importantly — conversations.”
