ONC wants best practices for data protection on mobile devices

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology is working to identify some best practices for mobile devices. The project aims to help medical providers secure and protect health information on laptops, tablets and smartphones as those devices continue to proliferate throughout the clinical sector. The ONC will gather public input to identify good practices. It then plans to spread those practices through what it promises will be clear, concise, easy to understand language.
