At a recent health IT demonstration, the Veterans Affairs Department showcased nine different technologies that it hopes will change how it delivers health care. The agency is testing medical mobile apps on iPads with 1,000 severely injured veterans.

The Defense Department says it's fast-tracking the construction of an infrastructure that will support future mobile devices in the military. A network that can securely support Apple and Android devices should be fully up and running by next year, while a secure app store will be online within a couple months.
The release of the new iPad could make the government mobile market even hotter than it is now. Tom Suder, the president and CEO of Mobilegov, joined In Depth with Francis Rose to discuss whether the new tablet will help fuel demand for iPads at federal agencies.
The government's adoption of mobile devices is only in its early stages. People hear about "wonderful, sexy new tools that are available for individuals, and we ask the question of ourselves, 'Why can they've be available in a working setting within government or industry?'" said one government technology expert.
The Veterans Affairs Department wants to hedge its bets when it comes to its planned rollout of up to 100,000 tablet devices. IT leaders worry about the unpredictability of the mobile technology landscape, and don't want to spend millions to develop apps for a platform that risks being superseded by a competitor.
Apple's iPad tablet could be tempting as a federal business tool, but it lacks security and manageability features.
Roger Baker, the Veterans Affairs Department chief information officer, said only about 1,000 users will have agency supplied devices that will be allowed to access VA systems. VA eventually wants to create an apps store where externally and internally developed software will be made available for doctors, nurses and other employees.
