mHealth Policy Workshop

As hospitals, clinics, and doctors' offices struggle with questions related to the use of mobile devices, mHealth Initiative offers a one-day policy working session:

Policy Workshop for Smartphones

and Other Mobile Devices in Healthcare

10 am - 4 pm - June 21, 2011 - Boston, MA

This is a hands-on workshop in which participants will share their concerns, experiences, and plans for addressing the issues of practical implementation and integration of mobile phones, tablets, and other mDevices in the healthcare setting. The emphasis will be on practical approaches and actual experiences. Topics will include:
  • Under what conditions should clinicians' use of mDevices (smartphones, tablets, etc.) be encouraged? (Addressing such issues as benefits, ownership, and personal use)
  • Should specific devices/apps be recommended or mandated? Should others be banned? Who makes these decisions? What needs to be done to create an inventory?
  • How can security and privacy measures be established? How can you guarantee HIPAA compliance? What must be done and what is optional?
  • What policies need to be implemented?
  • How should new ways of patient communication be managed?
  • How can new communication systems be used for marketing provider services?
  • What can be done to integrate mHealth applications into your HIS/EMR system?
  • Other issues raised by registrants.
