We've been approached by a medical practice looking to bring over their EMR system to FileMaker solely because of their desire to be able to use iPads for data entry etc. Essential features for the iPad would be to take patient photos (private), digital signatures for forms, other patient data entry. Of course this also needs to be accessible on desktops (they primarily use Macs).


I personally have little experience with FileMaker so would like to know how suitable it really is for such a task and if it will easily handle multiple photos per patient over hundreds of patients each year. Furthermore how fast is the frontend and would it be suitable fast for a practice where any doctor's time is very precious.
