HIT Security Hinges on Mobile Device Management
"Verizon for some odd reason wants you to have a certain plan and it's usually not a good plan, so there [have been] some problems," Brady says.
That "certain plan" would be a business plan, and BYODers would much prefer a Verizon phone with a consumer plan.
Brady does believe that the cost of the mobile device management app will end up being picked up by the healthcare organization, whether or not the device is BYOD or not. It's work related, so why wouldn't the business pay?
These issues and others will continue to bedevil CIOs at healthcare organizations. If you are interested in helping HIMSS hammer out policies and best practices, I'm sure the group would welcome your help.
