Abstract

Security and privacy have been well established as major considerations in health informatics generally (Rindfleisch 1997). A challenge for healthcare innovation is to embrace the potential of mobile health creatively within the healthcare system and not to merely replicate current technologies into a parallel wireless environment. In addressing this challenge, the complexities of securing health information along a composite clinical information pathway and in each situation of use must be defined.
