With the explosive growth of Smart Phones, Tablets and other mobile devices, Healthcare Delivery Systems (HDS) have to offer accessibility to both patients and practitioners. Mobility and support of a “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) environment have become increasingly necessary as we move into the digital industrial economy. Gartner predicts that Digital incompetence will cause a quarter (25 percent) of businesses to lose their market position by 2017. In the hyper-competitive HDS landscape, Hospitals have to offer more flexibility for access to both their external and internal customers to remain relevant and avoid losing market share.

This interactive panel discussion will focus on the challenges that Healthcare Delivery Systems face with these changes. This will include topics ranging from security issues, demands on the network, patient privacy, potential breach of data, and increased financial risk. The panel will discuss best practices within the clinical environment and the infrastructure required to serve the needs of the users, as well as protect the patient information.

Distinguished Panelists Include:
