NCP, American Hospice to Advise IT Professionals on Using Mobile Devices to Improve Care Delivery

Mobile Health Expo 2010 Session Shows Organizations How to Incorporate Mobile Device Into Day-to-Day Operations

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - October 4, 2010) -

What:   Mobile phones, sensor technology, portable medical devices, and wireless health applications will play a major role in healthcare over the next five years, according to a 2010 Gartner report. Yet, many healthcare CIOs have stalled rollout plans because they have a complicated mix of devices, operating systems, and security concerns.  
    At the Mobile Health Expo 2010, Fred Cruz, information technology director of American Hospice, and Martin Hack, executive vice president of NCP engineering, will explain how healthcare IT professionals can overcome roadblocks and incorporate mobile devices into their day-to-day operations. They will outline how American Hospice successfully accomplished this, resulting in better efficiency and improved care for thousands of patients, while also managing the data securely in full compliance with HIPAA regulations. Hack and Cruz will host the session, "Privacy and Security: How American Hospice Incorporated Mobile Devices Into Its Day to Day Operations." 
Why:   Too many IT healthcare professionals are falling into the trap of either a) ignoring mobile technology until they are forced to change, resulting in an overwhelming transition wrought with frustration; or b) pioneering into the mobile health arena, embracing the technology but overlooking security and management. If you've fallen into either of these traps -- or are looking to avoid these pitfalls -- this session can help.  
Where:   Mobile Health Expo 2010's session "Privacy and Security: How American Hospice Incorporated Mobile Devices Into Its Day to Day Operations." The expo is being held in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Las Vegas Convention Center.  
When:   Tuesday, October 19, 2010, 1:30 - 2:30 p.m. 
Who:   Fred Cruz, information technology director of American Hospice, conquered a large mobile device roll-out at American Hospice. He overcame integration issues, without using customized software, as well as managed complex wireless data security issues.  
    Martin Hack, executive vice president of NCP engineering. He has nearly two decades of experience developing game-changing information security products and services.
