What: It’s About the Data, Stupid! Real World Mobile Security
Description: Too often mobile security in healthcare is focused on device level security. Organizations become focused on securing and managing a wide array of hardware devices, and in a BYOD (bring your own device) world, that can quickly become burdensome.
BYOD is supposed to liberate organizations from hardware maintenance time and contract costs, but the unanticipated costs of multiple OS, platforms and user training and policies not only add up quickly, they shift the burden of mobile security to the end user. Best practices in mobile security minimize risks associated with BYOD by focusing on securing data, not devices, and focus on how to best leverage taxonomies and metadata to secure ePHI (electronic protected health information).
In this webinar, we’ll discuss how shifting the perspective from Mobile Device Management to Master Data Management makes MDM a key pillar of your HIPAA privacy and security planning. While this webinar is focused on healthcare, HITECH and HIPAA compliance, the best practices in BYOD are applicable to all highly-regulated industries managing sensitive data.

Presentations will include:
The Impact of Compliance
Presented by: Tatiana Melnik, Attorney, Dickinson Wright, PLLC
This presentation covers the legal and regulatory impact many companies are facing including the most common types of compliance. The increasing need for multi-compliance will be discussed. For example, hospitals processing patient payments online need to meet both HIPAA and PCI compliance; and banks that offer a health savings account need to be Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and HIPAA compliant.
BYOD: From Concept to Reality
Presented by: Kirk Larson, Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Children’s Hospital Central California
During this presentation Kirk Larson, Vice President and Chief Information Officer at Children’s Hospital Central California, will explain how the Children’s Hospital of Central California uses a virtual environment to securely manage a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) environment without jeopardizing sensitive data.
Pocket Healthcare: The Promise and Challenges of Mobile Health
Presented by: Predrag Klasnja, Assistant Professor, School of Information at the University of Michigan
Mobile phones are becoming an increasingly important platform for the delivery of health interventions. Phones are used to encourage physical activity and healthy diets, to monitor symptoms of asthma, heart disease, and chemotherapy side effects, and to send patients reminders to take medications and to attend appointments. In this talk,
Predrag will discuss why mobile phones are particularly well suited for creation of innovative and effective health interventions, the types of interventions that have been tried so far and the outcomes such interventions are able to achieve, and some of the challenges involved in making mobile health an integral part of the way we deliver healthcare services.
