Lab Coat Manufacturer Medelita® Announces iPad 2 Contest for Healthcare Professionals

San Clemente, CA (PRWEB) July 20, 2011

An old Welsh proverb states, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." While the health claims of the popular fruit have remained strong, the company Apple is doing anything but keeping healthcare professionals away. In a recent survey conducted by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, 70% of their members expected to implement the use of iPads in their hospitals by the end of 2011. In a similar study, based on more than 550,000 healthcare providers, Bulletin Healthcare reported that mobile access to medical news had increased 45% over the past year.  According to their findings, Apple clearly dominates the medical industry. “Combined, the iPhone and iPad grabbed more than 90%," said Bill Mulderry, president of Bulletin Healthcare.

Popular throughout the medical industry, iPads are being used for far more than medical news. From diagnostic encyclopedias and electronic medical records to hospital applications and test results available at their fingertips, the medical community is utilizing these mobile technologies across the board to learn new skills, provide better patient care, and improve the efficiency of every aspect of the medical profession.

Medelita®, a high-quality performance lab coat and scrubs manufacturer for both men and women, is a company driven by forward thinking and technological advancement. After eight years working in Emergency Medicine, Physician Assistant, Lara Manchik, PA-C, founded Medelita to address an urgent need in the healthcare industry for functional, performance-based lab coats and scrubs of superior quality, with ergonomic fit, superb durability, and professional styling. More than simply designer-quality medical apparel, Medelita has ensured that even their fabric works overtime along with their busy and dedicated customers. Medelita lab coats are breathable 100% cotton treated with DuPont™ Advanced Dual Action Teflon® fabric protector. Medelita is the first medical apparel manufacturer to use this nanotechnology to protect lab coats from fluid, soil, and stains, including blood.

On July 1st, Medelita launched an iPad 2 contest for medical professionals, and will be awarding a 16GB iPad 2 to three winners in the upcoming months. Although conference attendance is not necessary to win, the first two winners of the random drawing will be announced at the American College of Emergency Physicians Scientific Assembly conference in San Francisco, California from October 15th - 18th, 2011. The winner of the third iPad 2 will be announced by Medelita on December 1st, 2011 - allowing that lucky person the opportunity to begin the new year with an advanced tool for success and efficiency.
