POCUS needs 3rd party apps

Great piece by @vladsavov @verge on the iPad and its advantage over competitors because of 3rd party apps.

Now imagine a world with manufacturers that perceived their systems as platforms and regulatory bodies that encouraged 3rd party apps for POCUS systems. Think of all the untapped creative and economic potential that could be directed at improving patient care.

Maybe the "real" ultrasound renaissance will come from unlocking that opportunity rather than just the personalization of the technology.
