Presented by: Tatiana Melnik, Attorney, Dickinson Wright, PLLC
This presentation covers the legal and regulatory impact many companies are facing including the most common types of compliance. The increasing need for multi-compliance will be discussed. For example, hospitals processing patient payments online need to meet both HIPAA and PCI compliance; and banks that offer a health savings account need to be Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and HIPAA compliant.
Presented by: Kirk Larson, Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Children’s Hospital Central California

Mobile phones are becoming an increasingly important platform for the delivery of health interventions. Phones are used to encourage physical activity and healthy diets, to monitor symptoms of asthma, heart disease, and chemotherapy side effects, and to send patients reminders to take medications and to attend appointments. In this talk, Predrag will discuss why mobile phones are particularly well suited for creation of innovative and effective health interventions, the types of interventions that have been tried so far and the outcomes such interventions are able to achieve, and some of the challenges involved in making mobile health an integral part of the way we deliver healthcare services.
