This training session will discuss the requirements, the risks, and the issues of the increasing use of mobile devices for patient communications and provide a road map for how to use them safely and effectively, to increase the quality of health care and patient satisfaction.

Why Should You Attend:

The miniaturization of electronics and communications has revolutionized the way people communicate and the information they carry around with them every day. With these new technologies come new risks for privacy, security, and compliance, and if the risks haven't been properly considered, you may be left open to audits and fines for non-compliance.

In order to integrate the use of mobile technology into patient communications, it is essential to perform the proper steps in an information security compliance process to evaluate and address the risks of using the technology. This session will:

  • Describe the information security compliance process
  • How it works
  • How can it help you decide how to integrate mobile technology into your organization in a compliant manner

The process, including the use of information security risk analysis, will be explained, and the policies needed to support the process will be described.

Areas Covered:

  • Find out ways in which patients prefer to use their mobile technology to communicate with providers, and the ways providers want to use their mobile technology to enable better patient care.
  • Learn what are the risks of using mobile technology, what can go wrong, and what can result when it does.
  • Find out about HIPAA requirements for access and patient preferences, as well as the requirements to protect PHI.
  • Learn how to use an information security management process to evaluate risks and make decisions about how best to protect PHI and meet patient needs and desires.
  • Find out what policies and procedures you should have in place for dealing with mobile devices and any new technology.
  • Learn about the training and education that must take place to ensure your staff uses mobile devices properly and does not risk exposure of PHI.
  • Find out the steps to be followed in the event of a breach of PHI.
