I am using the iPad via Citrix to access my medical group's
Output and access to the records is great; but input(via a manual keyboard or the virtual keyboard) is a bit slow & cumbersome.
I cannot find a way to "control click" in order to delete an object or item.
Any ideas?

    When you tap with 3 fingers, the keyboard comes up. Citrix have added option to the top of the keyboard. Delete is one. I just tested it on a Citrix Desktop and it does work.

    You are almost there..Tapping with more than one finger does it.
    When I tapped with 2 fingers this brings up the contextual menu which I was seeking. This allows me to delete, or choose another task.
    Problem solved!
    Thanks for your help

    I have an EMR in my office and I am using a Motion tablet PC over the wireless network to review the charts while seeing patients. Is it possible to use an iPad for this purpose? I use windows based MediNotes software.

    On a related topic the hospital has EPIC EMR and we use desktop PCs. Wireless is available. Is it possible to use iPad in this setting?

    If there are any threads in this regard please redirect me.

    I use iTap to remotely control my desktop computer (which is a iMac running Windows 7 under parallels) to allow access to my EMR, my hospital PACS and hospital EMR. It works great as tool for accessing information. Input is great if you are using templates. Keyboard typing is not as accurate but I usually go back and dictate the HPI in Dragon anyway. When I am out of the office and in the hospital, I use Logmein to access my desktop as our hospital Wifi does not allow VPN connection. Logmein uses encryption so it is HIPA compliant. When I remote into my office computer, I have Parallels set as a bridged network. This allows me to access my Windows side of the computer without turning off the screen saver on the Mac side. That way anyone who might be sitting at my desk cannot see what I am doing. I am using eClincalWorks for my EMR.

    Although our hospital has EPIC, the older Citrix Servers we have are not compatible with the iPad Citrix client so I have to still use remote access via Logmein to my desktop computer for the hospital EMR. It works fine over a Wifi network.

    The nice thing about this setup is I can bring an XR image up as I am talking to my patients in the office or at the bedside. The battery life and portability of the iPad beats my Lenovo tablet and Dell laptop hands down.

    I have Medinotes and you can access it on iPad but entering data is problematic.

    my office uses nexgen for our emr.  it uses citrix and carebridge.  this is all PC compatable, but is there a software program available to interface my macbook with the citrix client so I can remotely do office work?
