Mobile Healthcare: Disk Encryption White Paper
As mobile healthcare continues to advance rapidly, segments such as fire, EMS, home health, and hospice are uniquely challenged with collecting patient encounter data in distributed, remote environments.
With mobile devices becoming more prevalent in these healthcare organizations, it is critical to ensure all electronic protected health information (ePHI) that resides on these devices is encrypted to meet HIPAA requirements.
This White Paper introduces best practices on disk encryption and MDM (Mobile Device Management). It also provides special consideration to the effect of iPad’s and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) strategies on healthcare organizations.
