Start-up companies and app developers are driving innovation in the new economy. New ideas, new technologies, and new applications developed by start-up, small and medium-sized companies are flooding the healthcare marketplace. Much of the innovation is at the front end of technology including mobile, social media, the Internet of Things (IoT), wearables and medical devices.

On the back end, small start-up companies are starting to accumulate mountains of personal information in their cloud-based systems. This information has value. There is a tremendous impetus to “monetize” this data as part of the start-up business model.

Privacy always emerges as a question to be answered by app developers and start-up companies in the healthcare space. Privacy and security controls are often mandatory requirements for health sector procurements. How can app developers and start-ups address the privacy concerns of patients, healthcare providers, clients and service providers while staying lean and agile in their development practices?

This webinar series will cover critical privacy legislation, conducting a privacy risk assessment, assessing what privacy and security features to build into your products and services, implementing an affordable privacy management program and handling a privacy breach.
