Smartphones may be the new frontier for medicine. We have seen smartphones evolve to handle a multitude of needs but now we could see them take a greater role in diagnosis and medical assistance. New apps may be able to track the rhythms of your heart or diagnose a bruise and give an appropriate prognosis.
Smartphone health assistance sounds great, but, this raises the question of safety and reliability. If a North Korea can orchestrate an attack on a multi-national corporation, what will prevent determined hackers from infiltrating your private health information? This could become even more problematic since our attorneys found that some researchers claim virtual doctor visits could partially replace visits to a doctor’s office. As more and more information is stored in the cloud, it becomes more important to fight for your rights.
