BYOD Listed on Top Health Industry Issues of 2013

1-15-2013 11-39-41 PM

PwC’s Health Research Institute publishes a list of the most important healthcare issues of the year to come, with BYOD security issues making the list.

With hospital IT departments working overtime to safely implement and optimize EHRs, secure access to the systems has been a largely neglected item. Only 49 percent of hospitals report having a secure mobile device strategy implemented. More than two-thirds of surveyed patients report feeling concerned about the privacy of their medical information if providers are able to access it on mobile devices.

Other notable issues making the list are the 2.3 percent medical device tax increase and population health management initiatives.
