Are wearables violating HIPAA?

Are wearables violating HIPAA? | Moolahonly Crowdfunding | Scoop.it

With the development of wearable technologies such as the Nike Fuel Band, Fitbit, and Apple Watch, consumers suddenly have more options to monitor their fitness performance than ever before. These devices are also making inroads into medicine as physicians begin to experiment with using Google Glass  to connect ER doctors to specialists in order to reduce patients’ wait times.

 

Whether it’s for the weight room or the emergency room, manufacturers and software developers are collaborating to draw health further into the digital realm.

 

And the way these devices capture data poses serious privacy and security issues to individually-identifiable health information that must be addressed.

 

Real world privacy concerns


The central challenge devices such as Google Glass and Jawbone UP pose stems from the fact that they employ cloud-based data storage. By purchasing these products, customers agree to a company’s Terms of Service, and in some cases, these terms can be fairly permissive in what they allow companies to do with that data.

 

According to Google Glass’s current Terms of Sale, for instance, the product falls under the company’s general Terms of Service. Although these grant the user intellectual property rights over data they store on Google servers, the company can still reproduce, modify, publicly display, distribute, and generally use this data to promote and enhance existing products and create new ones. Thus, although users may not be relinquishing ownership of their IP rights, it is clear that they are giving up a substantial degree of control over their data.

 

Google’s shift to a unified privacy policy in March 2012 further bolstered its ability to improve services through the collection and analysis of customer data. This new policy enabled the company to consolidate data on individual users from across its product portfolio and create unique user profiles, giving Google a fuller picture of individuals’ preferences and activities.

 

All personal health data is not created equal


Not all personal data is equal in the eyes of the law. That is the central issue when applying these practices to health information. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) permits the analysis and sharing of individually-identifiable health information when directly related to patient care, but it is more restrictive. The law permits health information to be used in assessments of physician and hospital performance, but allows patients to request that their data not be shared with third parties. HIPAA also requires consent before a healthcare provider uses health information for advertising purposes.

In a medical context that means: mining individually-identifiable health information could constitute a breach of patient privacy if the analysis falls outside of the scope of HIPAA. It is not clear whether using patient data to improve products, as opposed to health outcomes, is allowed under this law. And an even more concerning scenario could take shape if health information were combined with other personal, non-medical data for the purposes of user profiling.

 

HIPAA and wearables: What’s next?


If wearable device manufacturers want to store health information in the cloud, they must bring their Terms of Service and privacy policies in line with HIPAA privacy and security requirements.

The vendors making wearables should take several steps to achieve this goal.

Analyzing health data: Where privacy is concerned, companies must only analyze health data within the confines of what is permissible under HIPAA. If companies want to mine customer data for other purposes, they should keep health information separate from non-medical data.Sharing health data: Companies would also need to grant patients and consumers greater transparency into how their data is being used as well as who has access to it. HIPAA would also require obtaining a patient’s consent before using their health information in any part of the advertising process.Securing health data: When it comes to HIPAA-mandated security controls, companies should also protect health information with baseline access control and encryption measures, in addition to maintaining an “audit trail” of who has edited a patient’s information and when.

 

These measures would make the manufacturers of wearable health tech more accountable to the patients and consumers that their products serve — and it follows that any consumers, doctors and healthcare organizations using wearables in any capacity should seek out vendors will to adhere to those tenets moving forward.

Tesla's 38,000 pre-orders for Powerwall: people are hungry for renewables--for hope

Tesla announces 38,000 pre-orders for Powerwall home battery
Elon Musk says response has been "off the hook"

David Cooperrider & Audrey Selian 's curator insight, May 7, 2015 3:12 PM

People are ready. They want to participate--right from their homes--in the renewable energy transformation. Tesla is getting ready for next year's roll-out of their $30K all electric car--one that will sell like the Toyota Camry. With the model S the majority of new owners also purchase solar panels or other renewable sources--they love putting sunshine in their cars. Zero emissions and economic value to boot. With the powerwall they will also be able to go off grid, if they wish. The excitement is palpable and during Tesla's recent earnings call, CEO Elon Musk just announced that the company has so far taken 38,000 reservations for its Powerwall home battery.


"The response has been overwhelming. Like, crazy," Musk said.


He went on to describe the reception to Tesla Energy's introduction as "crazy off the hook." Tesla has also tallied 2,500 reservations for the PowerPack. Musk said this actually equates to more like 25,000 since reservations averaged around 10 Powerpacks each. "The volume of demand here has just been staggering," he said. "It really feels like, man, the stationary storage demand is just nutty. Like, worldwide, it’s just crazy."


A market analyst recently did an analysis of Tesla's soaring stock value. And his conclusion: Tesla is selling "hope in our future." 


He writes:


"Elon Musk is selling hope.

 

To the vast majority of people today, the future of the world seems bleak. Climate change is real, yet atmospheric carbon levels continue to rise.

 

There are two ways to deal with this without giving into despair. One way is to deny it. Climate change denialism is increasing in intensity even as the crisis deepens. Politicians seem incapable of taking decisive action against this well-funded opposition.

 

The other way to deal with the crisis is to hope for solutions. And that is what Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) is offering, hope in the form of electric cars powered by solar energy, energy that can be stored for use at night, creating a more stable electric grid in the process.

 

To skeptics, it seems inconceivable. But people are buying it, with real dollars. That's the lesson of Tesla's first quarter report. People are buying it."

4 Wearables That Give You Superpowers

4 Wearables That Give You Superpowers | Moolahonly Crowdfunding | Scoop.it

What Argodesign presented in response was "a provocation"—four wearable concepts that would not just track your heartbeat or put your email on your wrist, but give you what Rolston calls "superpowers."

He points to the modern smartphone as his evidence. It’s already given us the opportunity to fly through space (through maps or video conferencing), travel through time (through our photos or social networks), and increase our intelligence (through omnipresent Internet access). To him, wearables will just be "more literal extensions" of these powers. They’ll offer us everything from more coordination to improved hearing. And it’s the quest for these powers that will drive user adoption....

These devices for the safety of children are good in theory, however some seem to be let down by the noticbly short battery life. The Pebble Smartwatch has a battery life of 7 days and charges in less than two hours, The SAFE Kids Paxie Band has a battery life of only 36 hours. This could easily endanger a child when the parent is relying on it and the band has gone flat.

Huot makes a point using wearable devices that the current trend in web technologies towards responsive design and viewing exactly the same website but with a different arrangement on every device might not be exactly what a user wants.

He suggests that we could allow the user choice. This is interesting as it would allow tailored content towards each user, something that will become a larger trend in wearables due to the intimate nature of them.

In a male dominated market, it is important to consider women's interests in wearable technology. The current forrunners in smart watches are Pebble, Samsung Gear, Moto 360 and, on release, Apple's Watch. These devices are all rather masculine in design, industrial and metallic.

While some allow for personalisation in the watch band, there is still room for improvement in the actual devices design.

Wearable Devices for Women: Still Pretty and Still Dumb - NYTimes.com

Wearable Devices for Women: Still Pretty and Still Dumb - NYTimes.com | Moolahonly Crowdfunding | Scoop.it

Tech companies are looking for ways to design devices that not only appeal to women but are explicitly for women.

That’s unfortunate.

This summer, Google announced a version of Google Glass embedded in Diane von Furstenberg frames, and is working with Luxottica on more. Rebecca Minkoff and Case-Mate said they might but have not yet released a line of wearables and tech accessories.

And then there’s the My Intelligent Communication Accessory, or M.I.C.A., smart bracelet, designed in collaboration with Intel and Opening Ceremony, which finally went on sale this month.

The question for all of these “styled for women” devices is simple: why?...

Oooof, NY Times gives the Intel wearable MICA bracelet a failing grade.  ".....even if I were the kind of person who spends that kind of money on bracelets, the M.I.C.A. is a dismal failure as a communications device.  It cannot communicate with your actual smartphone — there’s not even an app for it. And the M.I.C.A. has its own phone number. So if you want to receive text message alerts on the bracelet, your contacts will have to text the bracelet, though it cannot receive calls.  Responses to incoming messages are limited; there’s no virtual keyboard, which would be impractical on such a small screen, or microphone for dictation. You can reply with up to 30 canned responses or create 10 of your own.
