New York, NY (Vocus/PRWEB) April 14, 2011
The Institute for Health Technology Transformation announced today the speakers for their panel session entitled, “Privacy and Data Security Challenges with Mobile Technology” at the Institute’s Health IT Summit in Ft. Lauderdale taking place May 10-11, 2011 at the W Fort Lauderdale.
The panel will be moderated by Barry Chaiken, MD, MPH, Chief Medical Officer, DocsNetwork, Ltd. and former HIMSS Chair, and speaking will be John Christly CISSP, MBA, HIPAA Security Officer, Memorial Healthcare System; Sara Rushinek, PhD, Professor, Health Information Systems, University of Miami; and David Reis, Director of IT Security, Thomas Jefferson University.
“As converged devices permeate US households, clinicians and patients alike will expect to safely and securely access health information to provide care and request care,” said David Reis. “Now is the time to begin the national dialog to address the security of the coming use of ‘mobile’ health IT.”
The panelists will be addressing a wide range of topics including how the use of cellular and wireless networks to deliver voice, video, and data content for healthcare represents an exciting new opportunity for providers and patients.
“We are entering exciting yet challenging new territory with new types of mobile and wireless devices that can be used for healthcare operations,” said John Christly. “These new devices and the applications that are being developed for them are showing real promise to enabling faster and sometimes easier access to healthcare data from anywhere with a wireless or cellular connection. As with any new technology, we must make plans to secure the data being accessed from these devices and tackle the operational issues that come with these new tools, including how to support and manage them, and how to standardize on a particular device or set of devices”
