About this Podcast...
"Most organisations looked at security over the last couple of years and personal devices wouldn’t have been allowed if it’s portable and encrypted. So we’ve turned things around there. Obviously corporate equipment is still encrypted but we’ve developed ways of allowing users to use their own devices, smart phones, tablets, laptops in a way that we don’t have to manage their local security AV protection. They’re isolated away from the corporate equipment and corporate data but they have access to our systems in a way that there is no interaction between their personal device and our systems that allows them to access our systems. So it’s become very popular. I think on a global level, eHealth and mHealth, ConnectHealth are growing very rapidly and we wanted to be part of that," said Neal Mullen, Group Deputy Director of ICT, St. Vincent’s Healthcare Group.
In this podcast Neal Mullen, joins Helen Winsor from Pharma IQ, to discuss St. Vincents’ pilot involving iPads – looking at the successes and obstacles encountered.
