QuickDrop™ Provides Data Security for Mobile Device Users

February 6, 2013

Protecting patient medical information just got easier for tablet and smartphone users. QuickDrop™ is a new app for mobile devices that was designed with HIPAA security rules in mind. It allows you to securely send and receive files of any size and type (document, photo, video, etc.). You access your information through a log-in screen and 256 bit encryption much like using a portal. Released in December of 2012 for iPhone and iPad users, the developers plan to add Mac and Android versions in early 2013.

Did you know that your workforce is your #1 leak to non-compliance? You can help decrease your medical practice’s exposure by implementing practices and tools that minimize that risk with your workforce and other providers. QuickDrop™ is an excellent tool to explore to help you ensure the security of patient protected health information for the mobile device users associated with your practice. To learn more about QuickDrop™ visit http://www.hitconsultant.net/2012/12/14/new-mobile-health-app-allows-hipaa-secure-file-sharing-of-patient-data/.

Interested in getting the app? You can easily add or download it to your mobile device by visiting this link: http://www.quickdropit.com/download.php. I’d love to hear your experience with QuickDrop™ and/or other apps you’ve found to improve the security of patient protected health information in your practice.

Additionally, CMS announced late in January that they are looking at making some Meaningful Use changes in 2015.
