Repaired Point of Care Devices Could Put Your Agency at Risk

8/20/2017 HealthWare Other 0 Comments

With the increasing number of bring your own devices (BYOD) being used by home health and hospice agencies you need to carefully consider your risk if one of those devices has been repaired by a third party.


Major manufacturers keep strict control of the parts that go into their devices. The same cannot be said for most third-party repair shops. Replacement parts could contain hardware or software that can make the device unsecure, potentially revealing protected health information and putting your agency at risk of HIPAA violations.
