Your staff most likely uses portable devices like smartphones, tablets, and laptops on a regular basis, not only for personal use but for business purposes as well. But if your healthcare organization is like most others, your staff’s mobile device use is violating the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) rather frequently. How can you manage portable device use and secure mobile information under HIPAA?
Learn how in this information-packed audio presentation by HIPAA expert Jim Sheldon-Dean. Discover what HIPAA regulations apply to the use of portable devices, both as tools for staff to use and as a means of communication with patients. Decode each type of portable device use: personal, business not involving identifiable patient information, business involving patient info, and patient communications. And for each type of use, learn how to carefully consider the rules and risks to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of patient information.
After attending this audio event, you will understand the HIPAA regulations governing mobile device use and how to comply with them. You’ll be able to gauge what is “reasonable” according to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) guidance when determining whether you can reasonably handle communicating via mobile devices when a patient requests it. You will also be able to stay within the regulations when using portable devices to communicate between healthcare professionals and put into place required policies, procedures, and storage (where needed) for mobile devices.
Here is a taste of what you will uncover:
