And Now for some news ….

 

Security of Mobile Data

Federal Trade Commissioner Julie Brill, speaking in Washington back in July, expressed concern about the way apps on smartphones and mobile devices are siphoning sensitive health data, and how some of that information may then be shared with third parties.

After a panel discussion hosted by U.S. political site The Hill, Brill told Reuters that many companies now prefer to focus on how data is used, because that is where “the rubber hits the road when it comes to patient harm.” Developers should give consumers more tools and “robust choice mechanisms” before any sensitive data is collected and stored.

“We don’t know where that information ultimately goes,” Brill told the panel. “It makes consumers uncomfortable.” She has put pressure on Congress to pass laws prohibiting the collection of personal information under false pretenses.

The debate around the gathering of consumer data is intensifying as Silicon Valley tech companies take a more active interest in mobile health. Apple Inc. and Google Inc. revealed new health-focused services for apps developers in recent months, dubbed Google Fit and HealthKit.

Brill’s comments followed a May report in which the FTC revealed the results of a study of mobile health-app developers, which found that a good portion collect consumer health data and give it to third-party entities.
