Many physicians, nurses, and technical staff like to carry PDAs to be kept abreast of patient conditions. Various companies want caretakers to view ECGs on their iPads.

Due to the incredibly private nature of medical records and data, if such a device were part of your network, are there any measures on software to actively erase the data in the event of a lost or stolen tablet or PDA? Is this feasible to implement as an add-on if that is not the case?
