Developing a Smartphone Policy for Health Care Providers

July 30

Learn policy recommendations for the use of a personal mobile device and how to comply with HIPAA regulations.

Technology’s benefits to health care cannot be understated. Smartphones, in particular, allow for greater communication between the patient and the provider, as well as between providers. However, as the saying goes, with great power comes great responsibility as mobile health care technology puts information at our fingertips, its use heightens risk to providers and patients alike. This information will review the important laws and regulations a health care organization needs to consider when developing their smartphone policies, as well as highlighting what regulators are looking for in reviewing an organization’s policies and procedures. The material will conclude with a practical look at crafting a least restrictive smartphone policy to ensure both risk mitigation and employee compliance.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to identify issues related to smartphone use by patients.
  • You will be able to create a meaningful policy that employees will be able to follow.
  • You will be able to recognize and avoid common pitfalls in developing your policies.
  • You will be able to identify which laws and regulations need to be addressed in effected smartphone policies and procedures.
