Identifying and Managing HIPAA Risks in Mobile Health

Guidehouse featured in Compliance Today

Guidehouse experts Jennifer Mitchell and Lauren Rosen examine how the advancements in technology and improved access to health information have changed the landscape of our healthcare system. This trend will only accelerate and, as a result, it is extremely important that those who design or use the technology to stay on top of the risks. Mobile health (mHealth) allows easier access to health information and allows for the provider to have patient health information at any time but this opens the door for health information to be compromised.  

Mobile application developers, as well as organizations that use mHealth technologies, must determine whether their activities are governed by HIPAA, and if so, must determine if their organization is HIPAA-compliant.
