We appreciate Dr. Tirer’s comments, which address two important issues not included in the original article.
First, Remote Wipe Authority is a common security feature included in mobile device management policies at many institutions. While a remote wipe can effectively delete sensitive data on a device, it is not specific to HIPAA-related data and can limit the ability to subsequently track the device (depending on the operating system). A more elegant approach would be selective wiping of HIPAA-compliant apps and data to limit the impact of personal data loss (should the device be recovered later) while also more effectively preserving tracking functionality.
