New Health Apps Section on HHS.gov/HIPAA via OCR Listserv

On September 2nd, 2020, the OCR launched a new feature on HHS.gov, titled Health Apps.  This new webpage takes the place of OCR’s previous Health App Developer Portal, and is available at https://www.hhs.gov/hipaa/for-professionals/special-topics/health-apps/index.html.

The new webpage highlights OCR’s guidance on when and how the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations apply to mobile health applications, including:

·       Mobile Health Apps Interactive Tool 

·       Health App Use Scenarios & HIPAA

·       FAQs on the HIPAA Right of Access, Apps & APIs

·       FAQs on HIPAA & Health Information Technology 

·       Guidance on HIPAA & Cloud Computing 

OCR will continue to make improvements to the HHS.gov/HIPAA web pages.  Have ideas?  Let us know at OCRPrivacy@hhs.gov.
