With 70 percent of organizations already adopting bring your own device (BYOD) and Gartner expecting this number to increase to 90 percent by the end of 2014, it is not a question of if, or when, it’s a question of will you be ready.

BYOD for Healthcare provides authoritative guidance to help you thrive during the healthcare BYOD (hBYOD) revolution. Jessica Keyes, president of New Art Technologies, Inc., professor at the University of Liverpool, and former managing director of R&D for the New York Stock Exchange, supplies an understanding of these new end users, their demands, and the strategic and tactical ramifications of these demands.

Maintaining a focus on the healthcare industry, the book considers the broad range of technical considerations, including selection, connectivity, training, support, and security. It examines the integration of BYOD to current health IT, legal, regulatory, and ethical issues. It also covers risk assessment and mitigation strategies for an hBYOD environment that are in line with medical laws, regulations, ethics, and the HIPAA and HITECH Acts.

The text discusses BYOD security and provides time-saving guidance on how to configure your hBYOD environment. It also considers how BYOD impacts resource management, certification of EMR/EHR software, health informatics, and health information exchange.

The book covers content and data management, risk assessment, and performance measurement and management. It includes a set of Quick Start guides with tips for assessing costs, cloud integration, and legal issues. It also contains a robust appendix with information on everything from security settings for Apple iOS devices to a sample employee mobile device agreement.
