ONC Privacy & Security Mobile Device Roundtable Input e-mail to HL7 Co-Chairs:

ONC's Office of the Chief Privacy Officer in cooperation with the HHS Office for Civil Rights (OCR) launched a Privacy & Security Mobile Device project. HL7 may have an opportunity this Spring to provide input into this project during a public roundtable. Although the focus is on privacy and security and many of those elements may be outside of HL7's domain as they are managed through lower level protocols, operating systems, etc., there is a sense that some of our standards may be, or may need to be applicable and sensitive to the context of a mobile device where the data exchanged is consumed.

We would like to get your input whether your workgroup already has, is planning to develop, or would believe there should be HL7 standards and/or guidance to enhance on the privacy and security of mobile devices. For example, are hardware/OS/network solutions sufficient to achieve appropriate privacy & security levels unique to mobile devices, or should additional data be available at the application level to enable appropriate restrictions by the application at that mobile device, or should we be completely agnostic to that context? Are there capabilities in the functional model that should be further defined uniquely to mobile devices, or is that context irrelevant?

A further question may be whether with the expansion of mobile devices there are other aspects beyond privacy & security in particular and that are unique to mobile computing that HL7 workgroups are already focusing on, have plans for, or should be considering. Although the primary focus of this question is on the Security, Healthcare Devices, EHR, CIC, and CBCC workgroups, other workgroups may have some perspectives as well that we should consider. We would appreciate your feedback by March 31 to help us determine how HL7 should respond to a request to contribute to the public roundtable.

You may post this on the PAC wiki page for Privacy & Security for Mobile Devices, or forward to either John Speakman or Hans Buitendijk.
