I would be VERY careful, and probably not advise this.
By using an app such as this, you will be housing patient data (Health Records, Protected by HIPPA) on a personal device that is not encrypted. This is a HUGE issue (speaking as a server admin at a large healthcare institution).
The only way I would use an ipad as a charter device is if it were merely a front end for a EHR housed on properly secured servers. Likely running citrix....or something similar.

There are a number of HIPAA (at least get the acronym right) compliant apps in the app store that let you manage your medical practice needs. Search on HIPAA and you'll get a list.
Many hospitals have internal policies as well that you need to be aware of if your practice is affiliated with a hospital.
It is not difficult to be HIPAA compliant, but you will want to be certain you are in compliance when it comes to patient records.
