The Balancing Act: Mobile Access and Secure Patient Data in Healthcare

The Growing Need for Mobile Access:

The demand for mobile access stems from the need for increased efficiency and responsiveness in a fast-paced environment. Mobile devices have become an indispensable tool for doctors and staff, allowing them to access sensitive patient data protected under HIPAA, even while on the go. This eliminates the need to stop and look up information on a computer, saving valuable time. Mobile technology goes beyond doctors; affiliates also utilize these devices to communicate, send, and even store confidential data.

Furthermore, the ability of mobile apps to read barcodes on medications, wristbands, and medical charts further strengthens the appeal of mobile devices as a universal data tool. This not only reduces transcription errors but also improves access to information and communication among healthcare professionals. However, these conveniences come at a cost, jeopardizing the very data they strive to protect. 

The Challenge of Cyber Threats:

Healthcare IT departments face a significant challenge as many physicians often use personal phones at work. Even if these phones are equipped with intrusive security measures, they are generally not as secure as work-issued devices. While IT departments can fortify on-site systems and devices, they have limited control over personal mobile devices that constantly move in and out of their purview. This gap in security is well-known to cybercriminals who have shifted their focus accordingly. The healthcare industry has suffered millions of dollars in damages and countless stolen or exposed patient records due to cyberattacks in recent years.
