BYOD Rugged Tablets

A popular topic for hospitals right now is whether to allow employees to use their personal smartphones and tablets for staff communications and patient alerts. “Bring your own device” (BYOD) is a challenging issue because it encompasses so many questions related to an organization’s costs, security risks, IT availability, and the varying needs of different groups of staff.
