I’m a really big fan of the mobi health news website. They do a really great job covering the mobile healthcare industry. Today someone pointed me to a series of articles they have going right now about HIPAA and mobile health applications.
These articles are being written by Adam H. Greene, JD, MPH who use to work at HHS and so he’s intimately familiar with the HIPAA laws. Here’s 2 articles that I’d consider must read articles for those that are interested in the HIPAA requirements for a mobile health app:
The first article asks the question most mobile health developers ask, Whether HIPAA even applies to mobile health apps. The second one talks about how to comply if your mobile health app does require HIPAA compliance.
Very important steps if you’re working in the mHealth space.
Of course, if you’re doing a mobile health EMR app, you’re going to have to worry about HIPAA. Although, you should already be quite familiar with that.
