Recently, the Department of Health and Human Services finalized an official mobile strategy. Implementation will begin in January, acting CIO John Teeter announced at a presentation to federal contractors Thursday.
Teeter said the strategy was finalized Wednesday and indicates the department’s commitment to technology and progress.
Teeter, who was the featured speaker at a presentation on HHS procurement opportunities sponsored by immixGroup, said the department’s mobile technology strategy will involve identifying user and business requirements as well as security and privacy requirements. In addition, the department will develop configuration baselines and provide recommendations on identified mobile technologies for implementation.
He also noted the need for mobile applications that are certified to meet federal standards for use in the health care area, such as the Food and Drug Administration’s diagnostic radiology application.
