Mobile Technology and HIPAA Compliance

Posted by Rebecca Santorios on January 7, 2016

ByteGrid will be exhibiting at HIMSS13 Conference next month March 3-7 in New Orleans, Louisiana.  Twelve workshop sessions will focus on Mobile Health – a hot industry topic in 2013. Mobile technology undoubtedly has many advantages to connecting patients to their caregivers and can even enhance healthcare related outcomes.  However, this growing technology also presents security, privacy and compliance concerns that shouldn’t be overlooked.  With the upswing in HIPAA HITECH fines, mobile technology breeches are sure to present concerns as they become increasingly, developed and accepted in this sector.

The best approach will be for the end user to be mindful of security and how it can potentially affect they way they integrate mobile application use with their patients information.  One step in the right direction will be to contact experts in the field of data security like the  ByteGrid team of compliance professionals.  We can assess this risk (by performing a risk assessment), ensure that the data is protected (by using high performing enterprise architecture) and ensure the environment where the application resides is controlled (with our fully implemented quality system).  Our team is committed to the highest level of quality when it comes to the management, integrity and availability of data subject to HIPAA HITECH regulations.

Stop by our booth at HIMSS and talk with us in person about mobile technology or any other questions you may have about data security, HIPAA HITECH and cloud hosting for the Healthcare sector - we are at booth #8047.
