Health IT Security: Clinical and IT Staff Relationships: Mobile Security Effects

While in the past their relationship bordered on resentful at times, healthcare clinicians and their IT staffs are more open to collaboration. This unison of different ideologies was spurred by the absolute need to improve patient care with healthcare IT and ensure that patients and their data remain safe. A few panelists at the Institute for Health Technology Transformation (iHT2) Health IT Summit last week discussed this rise in importance. Sean Kelly, Emergency Physician at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and CMO of Imprivata, said he believes there's an awareness among clinicians that they need to be cognizant of coming together with IT.
