Mobile Policy as HIPAA Protection

April 25, 2012

HIPAA Protection

Given all of the  legislation and the large number of mobile devices on the market and in our businesses today, it has become difficult for physician offices and their business associates to manage all of the devices and provide adequate HIPAA protection to prevent a privacy breach.  Everything from a USB flash drive to an electronic tablet or even a camera phone has become potential sources of a PHI breach.  It is important that you craft a mobile device policy that allows you to reasonably meet all of the rules.  Having this policy in place and administered will allow you to sleep at night knowing that you have done the due diligence and what is required by law.

Is your practice looking for a generic mobile policy?
