ONC launches mobile-device HIPAA compliance guidance page

At this week’s ONC Annual Meeting, federal health IT authorities unveiled a new site offering guidance for physicians and hospitals to deal with HIPAA compliance in the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) era. Smartphones, tablets and laptops might make administering health care more convenient and efficient, but they can be portals for data breaches if they’re not protected with thoughtful policies and security safeguards.

Recent stories on SearchHealthIT have shown hospitals struggling to support HIPAA compliance on mobile devices and industry leaders calling for more mobile device security and clarity in data ownership laws, despite data breach numbers shooting up faster than a rocket launched by a certain Communist dictator.

The ONC mobile security guidance site offers advice for health care providers, as well as educational materials such as a series of four posters to hang in the break room reminding employees of their mission to protect patient data. It also offers videos, fact sheets, frequently asked questions (FAQ) lists and other advice content for health care providers to shore up their mobile device security.

ONC isn’t the only party offering advice for mobile device policy supporting HIPAA compliance. Ponemon Institute founder Larry Ponemon and Rick Kam, president and cofounder of health IT security consultancy ID Experts, offered their own HIPAA compliance strategies for BYOD shops in a recent article for our site.
