Trip My Wire

From Wireless Newsfactor comes this timely report:
"The patient population has become more computer literate," says Bruce Robison, executive information technology director for CoxHealth, based in Springfield, Mo., which launched a wireless service for patients in February.
"Wireless networks meet a growing need for patients and families to access the Internet for communication, work and entertainment."
This of course opens the same can of worms that has been the topic of so much concern lately--- how do you secure such systems, and how do you control usage by people you have little or no authority over. Jeff at HIPAA blog addresses that here.
