HIPAA & Mobile Devices

As healthcare providers expand their use of Mobile Devices such as smart phones, tablets, and laptops, the risk of unauthorized disclosures also expands. As a result, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has generated additional information and some tools to help providers protect their patient's protected health information.

These tips include: Installing and enabling your firewall, installing and enabling encryption, and researching mobile applications before download.  These any many more tips, along with helpful application instructions will be included in the 2013 Online HIPAA training provided by Compliance PhD.

If you have questions about the safety of your mobile devices, or have any other HIPAA related questions, please feel free to contact us.
