In recent years, the number of people who use mobile devices for business and organizational purposes has increased. This phenomenon is now known as “bring your own device” (BYOD), and it is rapidly entering the health industry, which makes clear the necessity of studying its various dimensions for its implementation and application. Recently, the use of mobile devices is increasing due to the social tendencies of people. Rapid changes in modern gadgets and smartphones have also encouraged organizations to use their mobile devices in the workplace for business purposes, creating related opportunities and challenges. These cases have made the expansion of BYOD inevitable so that the only way to control BYOD’s threats is to accept its process and finally formulate related strategies and policies before using it.
