Mobile Security for Medical Organizations

The proliferation of mobile devices is changing the way medical organizations can provide thorough care, but the security issues they present have to be accounted for.

As mobile devices continue to be incorporated into society and business, it becomes evident just how useful they are. For the medical professional it is a game changer. Healthcare organizations need a place to file patient records, and with the dynamic ability of mobile devices, these organizations can now store this information in secure databases with the ability to access individual files at will. This improves an organizationís ability to provide care and creates a paradigm, using EMR technology, that allows multiple care providers to access a single patientís up-to-date records.

In order to properly utilize this technology in this way, there needs to be an understanding of just what devices can be used and what information can be accessed on them. This begins with the security solution. In order to properly manage the information, any practice looking to incorporate mobile devices will first need a mobile device management solution that facilitates the interoperability of the devices with the HIPAA-compliant IT infrastructure, and the security solutions in place that creates that compliant system valuable. Couple this with the MDM's integrated mobile application management tool, you can ensure that your company's mobile devices are only making data allowed by the software available to end users.

HIPAA-Specific Bring Your Own Device Policies

In order to get the most out of your mobile device strategy, while keeping your IT infrastructure certifiably safe, managing foreign devices is a crucial component to consider.

Since many of their workers routinely bring their personal smartphones and tablets to work, many businesses are beginning to consider this to be the place where the most diligent security protocols are necessary. A network administrator can't know what kind of malicious entities are being carried on a personal mobile device, so in response to this, many organizations have begun to institute a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategy. In a healthcare setting, this complicates situations due to the mandatory HIPAA compliance. Any organization that needs to meet federally mandated compliance standards needs to ensure they don't have holes in their IT's security; employee cell phones can present this kind of lapse.

At Acclamar, we've partnered with healthcare providers and implemented many solutions for organizations that have been frustrated with their IT. We can find a mobile device management solution that not only allows you to manage what data is available to workers, but what data can be accessed by particular users; giving your organization a secure and affordable mobile device strategy.

With Acclamar's mobile device management in tow, your company can better make decisions regarding the mobile devices that have access to your network.
