E2 Radio: From Justifiable Use to Mobile Devices http://t.co/d8A4fnoQ
Join us on Thursday, December 1, at 2:00 p.m. EST.
More physicians are improving patient care by bringing mobile devices along on their rounds – to access general information, like medicine’s side effects, and to access specific patients’ data, like medical images, blood test results, treatment, and prescriptions. Yet mobile devices are easily misplaced and often poorly secured. Further, some hospital workers have proven they can’t always help themselves from peeking at the medical records of celebrity patients – something that becomes easier to do as healthcare organizations replace paper records with electronic ones. How must healthcare CIOs enforce rules about justifiable use of and access to health records? How do they monitor and enforce mobile device security policies? What can other industries learn about employee misuse from the healthcare industry’s example?
Join executive editor Curtis Franklin and his guests – Robert Slocum, Sr. Product Marketing Manager of Storage & Security at Dell Healthcare and Life Sciences, and Keith Tyson of Dell – as they explore the ways in which healthcare professionals can use mobile devices to improve patient care while they maintain the critical requirements of patient confidentiality and information security.
