I have to be honest, BYOD in healthcare more or less terrifies me! The only thing worse than EMR's in my opinion is the ability to access EMR's on personally owned devices.

What's interesting though, is the speed in which these devices are being adopted. With the iPhone and iPad being the most adopted devices, security is easier, as there are companies such as Goode that can be used, if required, to fill in the managment and security holes. With hospitals and doctors around the world standardizing on those two products, there's less of an issue than there would be if a wide variety of devices were being used.

Security is a big issue with BOYD, but I do think these are early days. There is much work to be done in order to make any personal device more secure. http://ow.ly/9mG2O

re: Why BYOD Doesn't Always Work In Healthcare
A great article that brings up the case for moving all the applications to a web enabled state. By having "thin client" solutions in place it really diminishes much of the data issues residing on individuals devices as all the data will always stay on the server. Also as mobile is becoming so dominate in the workplace and especially in healthcare, IT and its vendor needs to have mobile sites/solutions developed for these devices to resolve the screen issues.

We work with a number of healthcare providers on the marketing side and because of the shift to mobile we now developed two landing pages on for the traditional desktop/laptop and the other for mobile. One has to remember mobile devices need to access "finger friendly" sites as they usually don't have mice and the mobile site needs to be able to detect if its displaying to a table or to a smart phone.

The biggest challenge for the healthcare CIO is there heavy dependence on their vendor's solutions and their vendors ability to make these enhancements to keep in step with their user demands.
