    Is there a secure (password protected) stand-alone calendar for the iphone 5? I use the calendar that comes with the device for home appt, which I sync to iCloud. However, I want to have a secure (non-sync) calendar that I can use to record upcoming patient appointments for my clinic.

    The two requirements I have are: (1) it has a second level of password protection. The iphone is pass code protected already. (2) I can disable syncing with cloud-based calendars. I don't want the patient information to be distributed in any way outside of the device.

    Does such a calendar exist?

    I do not believe that the Google calendar would serve the purpose. I want to avoid sending patient information off of the device, such as to the iCloud and Google Sync servers

    Outlook.com email account/calendar. Free

    Divide app, exchange sync to that Outlook.com app. Free

    I use Divide as the exchange client for my work email. Keeps it nice and separated from my personal stuff. You can set a passcode for the app itself.

    Edit
    Oops missed the later non cloud requirement.

    I don't know how to elaborate further, ask specifically. Also note that I have yet to use the service for any length of time.

    Yes Outlook.com = outlook dot com
    I think...

    Rather than use a calendar application have you considered a database application such as FileMaker Pro.

    If you're concerned with HIPAA I suggest you look into a hosted Exchange provider that is compliant...and there's a lot of them.
