Weekly Goat Report - Platform Wars (11/7/14)

This week Apple lost .07 percent of the mobile device pie to Android in the iOS-Android device wars among pMD's charge capture providers. The national buzz around Apple this week is Apple's mobile payment system, Apple Pay, as various large retailers have blocked it from their stores. Both CVS and Rite Aid have disabled Apple Pay; the merchants are allegedly holding out for the release of rival mobile payment app, CurrentC.

Meanwhile, Google's mobile payment app, Google Wallet, is happily riding the wave of attention that Apple Pay is creating, as it has seen a recent surge in usage by Android users.


Signor Goat reports updates from the front lines of the iOS-Android wars. Each Friday, we report the current device breakdown of our charge capture physician users and identify the net winner for the week. Check back next Friday for your dose of our little medical corner of the platform wars.
