Kinvey HIPAA Compliant mBaaS Checklist
What do you need to do to ensure your mobile apps address e-PHI rules outlined in HIPAA?
Healthcare organizations are under intense pressure from both the U.S. government and payers to reduce costs while improving patient outcomes. Mobile healthcare (mHealth) is poised to make a huge impact with connected medical devices, wearable devices, patient adherence, clinical trials, and other B2C, B2B, and B2E apps to drive increased productivity, lower costs, and improve patient-centric healthcare. In fact, the mHealth solution market is projected to reach $59.15 Billion by 2020.
But mobile apps pose new challenges for adhering to Privacy and Security Rules for securing electronic Protected Health Information (e-PHI) addressed in HIPAA and HITECH. Healthcare organizations that fail to implement the necessary safeguards as required by these laws risk exposing sensitive PHI and may also incur the high costs of non-compliance.
