Enabling Mobile Healthcare in an Era of Accelerating Change

December 6, 2016
2:10pm - 2:40pm
Grand A/B

Whether it's a new app, smart phone operating system, or medical device, advances in mobile technology seem to be accelerating at warp speed. Without a doubt, mHealth presents unique opportunities for increasing clinician productivity and engaging patients - from devices at the bedside to health data tracking in the home. But it also presents often daunting privacy and security challenges.

Nobody knows that better than Karl West, CISO of Intermountain Healthcare, which operates 22 hospitals in Utah and one in Idaho. Intermountain has a long history of securely adopting, developing, and implementing new technologies, including an aggressive but prudent adoption of mHealth.

In this presentation, West will address the forces fueling the mHealth revolution, discuss Intermountain’s mobile initiatives, and then explain what he considers the best and most practical way to mitigate the related risks.

Only by developing the appropriate security architecture, West says, can a healthcare organization successfully assimilate mHealth technology into the delivery of healthcare AND execute privacy and security strategies for emerging mobile technologies.

In this session, he'll outline the process required to do that.
