The mobile Web and "app" landscape is not your father's Internet.
– Pam Dixon, executive director, World Privacy Forum

It's important that health care providers conduct a thorough technical review/risk audit of these new technologies before implementation. Assessments need to include how and when the technology will be used by patients and/or employees. Many health care providers are looking at developing or using apps, especially for tablets and iPhones, including everything from single apps like iPhone glucometers to providers handing out tablets for full "clinic in hand" programs. For those health care providers developing their own app or mobile clinic tablet, it is crucial to have the app development team sit down with the legal, privacy, and compliance counsel. This can head off all sorts of problems later on. Compliance always needs to win, and developers need to really understand that.
