In order to integrate the use of mobile devices and texting into practitioner and patient communications, it is essential to perform the proper steps in an information privacy and 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, and how it can help you decide how to integrate mobile devices and texting into your organization in a compliant way. The process, including the use of information security risk analysis, will be explained, and the policies needed to support the process will be described. There have long been HIPAA requirements for covered entities to secure PHI and do their best to meet the requests of their patients for particular modes of communication, and using mobile devices is no exception.
This session will focus on the use of mobile devices such as smart phones in the healthcare setting. The use of mobile devices and texting services is pervasive in society today and healthcare practitioners need to be prepared to make sound decisions when considering how to use mobile devices for various purposes, such as staff personal business use (e.g., “I’m running late in traffic due to the weather”), normal business use not involving any Protected Health Information (e.g., “The copier in the back hall needs new toner ordered for it”), business or professional use involving PHI (e.g., “Patient Joe Jones is coming in for his heart event follow-up at 10 AM, and his latest blood numbers are as follows…”), and communications with patients for a wide variety of reasons. All of these uses must be considered and the appropriate procedures defined for each.
