HP’s white paper on ‘A holistic approach to BYOD security and management’ was interesting in that it valadated the concept of do whatever you need to to accept BYOD into your network. We found this out after trying a large MDM system which proved to costly and did really fit our main issue, which was finding a BYOD way to communicate patient info with HIPAA compliant security on the docotrs smart phones and tablets. We ended up going with a simple and easy to use secure texting app (TigerText) that was HIPAA compliant and that the doctors could learn quickly and feel comfortable with.
