What Healthcare Can Learn From the New Department of Defense (DoD) Mobility Device Strategy

June 18, 2012



The Department of Defense (DoD) recently released their mobile device strategy that talks about how to enable the use of mobile devices in defense applications. The DoD ‘s requirements around security and reliability for mobile apps and devices are just as stringent as those that should be implemented in healthcare so there’s probably a lot for CIOs and CTOs to take from it. The DoD Mobile Device Strategy focuses on “improving three areas critical to mobility: wireless infrastructure, mobile devices, and mobile applications, and works to ensure these areas remain reliable, secure and flexible enough to keep up with fast-changing technology.”
