HHS Office of Civil Rights (OCR) releases HIPAA examples


Read More

The department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has released some examples from its Office of Civil Rights (OCR) about when mHealth developers need to consider HIPAA. The guidance provides six examples, two of which trigger HIPAA requirements and four do not. Below is a very abbreviated list of these examples, see the full guidance for full details.

In the examples we see that the provider organization actually has to pay the application developer to trigger HIPAA, even data sharing agreements aren’t enough. Interesting read for anyone building out an mHealth app who is considering whether HIPAA applies.
