Of course, digital health solutions and BYOD platforms also present unique challenges. These include issues related to data security, connectivity, IT user support and patient privacy concerns. As a leader in driving innovative solutions that protect both patients and providers, Philips is actively working to make sure our mobile solutions are secure, supported and private.
It’s already clear BYOD can facilitate better connections between healthcare systems, providers and patients across the care continuum. As more healthcare organizations develop policies and programs that support BYOD, it will be exciting to see how continued innovation in mobile products and services help yield better patient care and outcomes.
