From management tips to breaking news updates, here are seven must-have iPad apps for healthcare executives.

CNBC's Real-Time iPad app allows hospital leaders to stay up-to-date on a broad range of business-sector information, including stock quotes before, during and after stock market hours from the NYSE and NASDAQ. The app also offers critical, breaking business news, videos and profiles. Users can even view company-specific news and create personal scrolling tickers and stock watch lists.

2. NEJM This Week (free). The New England Journal of Medicine is a staple publication for healthcare leaders who want to stay on top of the latest research articles, case studies and commentary.
