HIPAA & mHealth: Key Challenges and Solutions

December 6, 2016
1:30pm - 2:00pm
Grand D

More and more, patients expect to be able to use their tablets and smart phones to access their health care treatment and payment information. To meet this demand, health care organizations have rushed to meet this demand, creating a range of applications to assist with patient scheduling, payment for treatment, and sharing of medical records.

Yet, this increased integration has come with questions about the applicability of the privacy and security standards of HIPAA. To address these concerns, the HHS Office for Civil Rights - the office which enforces HIPAA - developed an online campaign to solicit questions regarding HIPAA requirements and the development of mobile technologies.

This presentation will review a sampling of these questions and provide practical guidance on how health care organizations can address the unique challenges posed by the offering of mHealth platforms and services.

Three key takeaways:

  • Gain awareness of the types of product and service offerings likely to trigger HIPAA requirements.
  • Learn to address some key challenges posed during the HHS-OCR online questions campaign.
  • Receive baseline guidance that can be used to guide the development and offering of mHealth solutions (e.g. considering BAA terms).
