May 2, 2012 - PRLog -- Innovative security solutions company, Bradford Networks, sits down to talk to HIT Consultant about the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) Program within healthcare institutions. Fred Pennic, Founder of HIT Consultant, gets important points and the potential security risks about the program from Tom Murphy, Chief Marketing Officer of Bradford Networks.

The growing popularity of BYOD and implementing electronic medical records by healthcare professionals has both pros and cons. BYOD does allow healthcare professionals and patients to use their own mobile devices to access healthcare records, but this program also raises several concerns surrounding the security and privacy risks. In order to effectively management BYOD, IT departments must create effective security policies for mobile device management that ensures the safety of patient data.  

“The demand for healthcare staff to bring their own device will continue to grow and healthcare organizations must be prepared to effectively manage and meet those demands,” said Pennic.  

In the newest podcast session on HIT Consultant, Murphy discusses the security implications of BYOD, best practices, mobile device strategy, and the impact that BYOD will have on healthcare quality and business processes. This first podcast session is approximately 15 minutes long. The second podcast session in the series is scheduled to be released later this month on http://www.hitconsultant.net.
