PointRF debuts NoWander Connect mobile solution at HIMSS13: PointRF Solutions, LLC, a leading provider of safety, security and business intelligence solutions for the healthcare industry, today announced it will debut at HiMSS13 this week in booth #8547 its NoWander Connect Solution, featuring two-way device-to-device communications. The solution portfolio includes a patient bracelet with LCD screen, staff badge, and mobile application for iPhone, iPad, and Android. Part of the PointRF NoWander Safety and Security Platform for long-term and acute healthcare institutions, the NoWander Connect Solution is the first patient life-safety solution on the market that can capture and deliver patient activity data regardless of whether facility infrastructure goes down or patients are off-site, which enables direct communication with staff devices, independent of servers or other onsite hardware. To meet market demand for readily available, mobile access to patient health and security data, the NoWander Connect Solution includes real-time locating system (RTLS) tracking between any two devices and administering of medication. Organizations have the flexibility to select specific patient data that will populate the LCD display screens on the patient bracelet and mobile application when authorized staff badges are within range. All data captured is also directly uploaded to facility servers for later reporting.
Medical Electronic Attachment, Inc. to launch FastKapture at HIMSS13: Medical Electronic Attachment (MEA), the recognized leader in secure health information exchange, announces the launch of FastKapture at HIMSS13. The mobile app utilizes the camera on personal mobile devices to capture medical documents for HIPAA-compliant storage, retrieval and transmission. Data secured via FastKapture is not saved on the device, eliminating the risk of security breaches. “Personal mobile devices are becoming commonplace in our industry,” says Lindy Benton, CEO of MEA. “Our patent-pending FastKapture app allows MEA to provide health plans and providers with a convenient, secure capture method that addresses the financial and logistical challenges of gathering medical information.” All data collected through FastKapture is managed within MEA’s FastAttach® solution, which enables health plans and providers to create an electronic envelope containing all requested documents required for medical record, claims and audit reviews.
Jericho Systems to demonstrate patient control over shared medical records at HIMSS13 Interoperability Showcase: Jericho Systems Corporation announced that it is demonstrating the enforcement of digital privacy preferences as part of a reference pilot being conducted on behalf of the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) at the 2013 Annual Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Conference & Exhibition. The pilot demonstration, featuring Jericho Systems’ EnterSpace Exchange and EnterSpace Decisioning Service software, will appear in the HIMSS13 Interoperability Showcase at the ONC Data Segmentation for Privacy (DS4P) booth from March 4-6, 2013, in the La Nouvelle Ballroom–Level 2, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. The ONC-sponsored demonstration simulates the exchange of electronic medical records using a commonly used Internet specification called the eHealth Exchange (once known as the Nationwide Health Information Network Exchange). A centralized repository is used to store digital policies that specify conditions under which Protected Health Information (PHI) can be electronically shared. At the booth, visitors can explore Jericho Systems’ PatientPortal(TM) user interface that allows patients to view and change privacy preferences. Simulated patients will control the release of their PHI when their medical records are requested electronically from their healthcare provider. “Changing federal and state laws will require increased patient control over the electronic sharing of PHI outside of the health provider’s organization,” said Jericho CTO David Staggs. “Jericho Systems’ PatientPortal and gateway products fit seamlessly within an electronic workflow to provide a secure and auditable solution to consent management and organizational control over shared PHI.”
TerraWi to debut groundbreaking Mobile-Loc 1.2 at HIMSS13: TerraWi, one of the nation’s leaders in Secure Data Mobility Management (SDMM), will launch its groundbreaking Mobile-Loc 1.2 technology at the HIMSS13 conference in New Orleans this week. TerraWi will be exhibiting and demonstrating the new 1.2 version of Mobile-Loc (booth #475) in partnership with Halock Security Labs, a leader in information security (Booth #473). TerraWi has created a new paradigm by developing Mobile Security powered by location. The company’s approach to delivery of secure data on any device is unique by virtualizing access to data by extending its secure container from the data center out to any mobile device. “Mobile-Loc 1.2 is location-aware, providing geo-fenced access to Clouds, dynamic entitlements and data access,” says Ryan Walters , Founder and Chief Executive Officer of TerraWi. “Quite simply, we don’t secure the device, we secure the data. We are focused on protecting data in use on any mobile device on any network.” TerraWi uses Dynamic Authentication tied to Geographic Proximity and Biometrics to determine access to the secure cloud/data center, which data elements can be accessed (i.e., a single file within a folder), and control over what actions can be taken on those data elements (i.e., read, write, change or view). Defining the geographic boundaries of where data should be used and accessed, TerraWi ensures that data is not left vulnerable on a protected mobile device when it travels outside the geo-fenced boundary.
