Hacking Health: Addressing mHealth Privacy and Security Risks

Learn the best practices in mobile health privacy and security to minimize potential legal and reputational risks.

According to industry reports, an estimated half billion people across the globe will be using mobile health apps this year. Mobile health solutions have the potential to dramatically change the delivery of health care - tackling challenges such as disparate access to care, federal budgetary constraints, and care coordination - and encouraging patients to take a more active role in their health. However, the most cited concern relating to the widespread adoption of these technologies is the inherent privacy and security threats. In order for mHealth to become an integral part of the health care delivery system, patients need to have confidence that their personal health information will remain confidential and secure. Health care has been the hot target for cyber threats and intrusions and regulatory agencies domestically and abroad have been far outpaced by the industry's technological advancements. This topic will discuss the threat landscape for mobile health apps and cover the latest regulatory and compliance guidance as well as security tips and lessons learned from the field. The topic will provide you with recommended best practices in mobile health privacy and security as well as essential elements to minimize potential legal and reputational risks when companies utilize digital health tools.
