“Representatives from Apple have visited executives for Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center ‘three or four times’ to talk about the Apple tablet’s potential for medical professionals at Cedars-Sinai, according to entrepreneur Jason Wilk,” Paul Boutin reports for VentureBeat.

Boutin reports, “In a phone call, Wilk said the number of visits was ‘three or four’ and that his second-hand information suggested Apple wasn’t yet trying to close a sale, but rather probing for possible uses for the new device, which is almost certainly the tablet computer Apple plans to debut on January 27th.”
