Healthcare information technology has overcome many of the Web application security challenges in the past decade. We can now access information more securely and incidents of unintentional data loss are on the decline. However, more must be done to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of mobile applications in the healthcare field. Whether it is physicians using iPads to access treatment histories or patients managing healthcare options via smart phones, the proposed CAP framework (checks, assurances, protection) adds additional security and privacy layers to our modern mobile medical needs.
