And also what if we don't retrieve info but simply post info to servers using the app?

@powelljf3 What if the data is only text-data by patients, but not actual medical documents for example: note-taking app kind of a thing. Please let me know. Thanks!

OK, that makes sense. I will need to engage a security consultant to see how this can work. Thanks man.

Hmmm. But if we use SSL connection for data going to and from the device, then its encrypted, thus making it a secure app?

Hey, thats the thing. We are not storing any info on the app. the app will pull data from website but will never store anything. after authentication it will display data from database. For our servers, we do use encryption at rest so even if the data is not being shown it is encrypted with 256 bit security.

Hey, sorry for the mistake on my part in not clarifying but when i mentioned "other security provisions"; we are doing all above the above like preventing SQL injecitons, networking monitoring, etc. The website is not the problem, its the mobile iphone app that is the issue here.
