FINAL Practice Guide Published – NIST Special Publication: 1800-1, Securing Electronic Health Records on Mobile Devices

We are excited to announce that National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication: 1800-1, Securing Electronic Health Records on Mobile Devices is now final. 

Using mobile devices to store, process, and transmit patient information has become increasingly popular amongst healthcare providers. When health information is compromised, organizations can face penalties and lose consumer trust, and patient care and safety may be at risk.

To address this challenge, cybersecurity experts at the NCCoE collaborated with the healthcare industry and technology vendors to develop an example solution to show healthcare providers how they can secure electronic health records on mobile devices. The solution is guided by standards and best practices from NIST and others, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) rules.

The final practice guide is available for download in PDF or web viewing.
