Webinar/Audio Conference FAQs

If patients have their medical records stolen due to your noncompliance with HIPAA, negligence with data security, or pure laziness, you will drastically and negatively affect their lives, not to mention your organization’s brand. As patient records go digital, hacking health records for profit is becoming more prevalent.

Mobile Devices have become common for health care providers to communicate with patients or to access/relay PHI to other providers using mobile devices. However, as that technology has advanced, physicians and health care organizations have found it necessary to create their own policies in order to protect physicians and patients alike.

Approximately 40% of the breaches involving 500 or more individuals reported to HHS involved mobile devices. Mobile devices have become common for health care providers to communicate with patients or to access/relay PHI to other providers using mobile devices.

The unauthorized disclosure of ePHI is a big risk when using mobile devices because they are small, portable, highly visible, unlikely password protected, unlikely to have encrypted PHI, and likely to connect with Wi-Fi (further risking interception).

As technology has advanced, health care organizations have found it necessary to create policies in order to protect physicians and patients alike.

Participants will learn:

  • What policies and procedures need to be in place to reduce the risks of portable devices and systems?
  • Compliance issues to watch out for – when using e-mail and texting to communicate with each other
  • Guidelines on ensuring proper controls – storing unencrypted PHI
  • Developing the policies that protect you and your patients
