Re: [iPhone] iphone HIPAA compliant?

It isn't the phone that needs to be compliant but the hospital policy and the particular medical apps you are running on the phone. The phone itself is capable of being part of a HIPAA compliant policy with remote wipe, autolock and strong PWs. The particular hospital will okay or not okay the device for use in their practice based on their own particular HIPAA procedures. You can have one hospital say yes and another say no; it depends on their particular policy and if they insist on BB you're stuck but not because there is a "problem" with iOS...but merely because that is their particular policy.
