Answer Wiki:
In the deployments we have seen the iPad has to be password protected first and for most. Then you have to identify how the data is secured within the application you are running. If you are running Pocket Wyse, you can always block that MAC address from your network to ensure that device in case it has been stolen is no longer allowed on your network. Also ensure that passwords are not stored in the system and that the App itself does not store the data in the SQLlite (especially health data).

Another strategy is to deploy iPads within a virtual desktop infrastructure. That way, no clinical data resides on the iPad itself — it’s all on the back-end server.
