Security: Pervasive Health Care Applications Face Tough Security Challenges

Check out the latest article on mobile computing security which details my approach at PatientKeeper to delivery of secure healthcare applications on a PDA:

Stanford, Vince. Pervasive Health Care Applications Face Tough Security Challenges. IEEE Pervasive Computing, Apr-Jun 2002, pp. 1014.

"... the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 dramatically changes the legal environment for medical records processing, defining felony offenses and penalties for disclosing individually identifiable medical records... There is nothing like the threat of going to prison to concentrate the mind, so health care IT executives are now concentrating on bringing their systems into compliance as deadlines phase in."

This paper is not on the web yet. Send me a note if you need a copy.
