Developing a Smartphone Policy for Health Care Providers

Developing a Smartphone Policy for Health Care Providers

Learn policy recommendations for the use of a personal mobile device and how to comply with HIPAA/HITECH regulations. Healthcare providers are increasingly using their personally owned mobile devices to connect to their information network and conduct work remotely, or to communicate directly with patients or other healthcare providers. With the increase in the consumerization of information technology, organizations will need to address the use of mobile devices in the workplace. This topic will help healthcare organizations to understand the risks associated with using mobile devices to access personal identifiable information or protected health information, and the importance of having a BYOD policy in place. This topic will provide policy recommendations for the use of a personal mobile device for employment purposes, including minimum mobile device security requirements, acceptable use and disclosure of confidential information with a mobile device, procedure for notification of lost or stolen device, sanctions, and more.
