71% of clinicians say their employer allows some form of BYOD, survey finds

Hospitals are eying "bring your own device," or BYOD, policies to streamline communication and improve cost savings, according to a Spok survey.

For the survey, Spok asked more than 350 healthcare leaders about their attitudes toward BYOD.

Here are five survey insights.

1. The majority of respondents (71 percent) indicated some form of BYOD is allowed at their hospital.

2. The No. 1 reason hospitals cited for prohibiting BYOD is data security.

3. Sixty-three percent of physicians and 41 percent of nurses admitted to using their personal devices for work when BYOD is not allowed.

4. Thirty-eight percent of physicians and 59 percent of nurses said they preferred hospital-issued devices over personal devices.

5. Respondents indicated the majority of BYOD policies focus on the security of devices (81 percent) and which devices are supported (76 percent).
