Description: Mobile devices are becoming ubiquitous in all companies, including those in the healthcare, finance, and information technology sectors. Companies are adopting Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies permitting employees to use mobile devices in a variety of work settings. Doctors, for example, are remotely accessing EHRs through iPads and smartphones, thereby improving their workflow and patient care. Patients are similarly using mobile technologies to access and monitor their health on the go.
This presentation will provide an overview of the legal and regulatory framework for mobile devices and will discuss drafting a BYOD policy, best technical practices for implementation, and enforcement.
