HIPAA Tigertext and BYOD email

I am now working in a small hospital admin office, and we are dealing with the issue of our network, and HIPAA compliance.

This article talks about the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) issues we are also having to deal with:

So we are also dealing with the issue that Doctors are using iPads and smartphone to access their hospital emails and patient files on the network, and then copying/pasting the info into their text messages to other doctors, nurses and patients. This really opens the hospital up to possible HIPAA fines and lawsuits.

Now the above article recommends Tigertext as a HIPAA compliant form of secure texting which could take care of that issue since the message is on a closed network and the messages can be deletes by the hospital, or they can be set to automatically delete.

But what about a similar app that does the same (as Tigertext does for text messages) for emails they send via their personal email accounts?

Anyone know of such an app?

Is anyone else having to deal with these issues at work, any advice on how you deal with HIPAA and BYOD?
