You should go into a modern nursing home and watch them as they use
touch screens mounted on the walls.  No keyboards, as they don't have
time.  A touch screen is perfect for that kind of health care system and
most doctors approve of this approach.

I was referring to billing, insurance, and the like.

But the touchscreen in the nursing home or doctors office is just the headwaters of the healthcare system... these are data synchronized systems where billing and insurance gets its impetus. After that they can use whatever works best. I've seen one iPad in one doctors office, and the rest were laptops with touchscreens. That is just the way they want it, as I have observed.
