Recently, an acquaintance had a near-meltdown when she couldn’t figure out how to print from her Windows tablet to her Dell printer. On Facebook, she implored friends to help her figure out what she was doing wrong—indicating she needed printouts for work, pronto.

She isn’t alone. Take a look at the user review section of any mobile print app, and you will encounter plenty of comments around printing issues (e.g., app doesn’t work, formatting is incorrect, printer isn’t supported). Indeed, recent InfoTrends research indicated that the top perceived barriers to mobile printing center around technical and compatibility issues.

Assuming you needed to print something from your smartphone or tablet for personal reasons, which would be the largest barriers to doing so?

Earlier this week, Wal-Mart announced its intentions to enter the electronic health record (EHR) marketplace. Unlike most providers in this space, Wal-Mart is attacking the smallest healthcare practices through a collaboration between its Sam’s Club division, Dell, and private software firm eClinicalWorks.

We’ve been talking quite a bit about the electronic health record (EHR) trend recently, especially in light of President Obama’s commitment to invest heavily in this area.
