Ask An App Advisor

Members of the our Expert Panel hold a monthly mini-webinar (~15 minutes) followed by a Q&A. The goal of these webinars is to explain how our App Evaluation Model can work in real time, and to address questions from both the provider and patient perspectives about the Model. These webinars are open to the public, however, pre-registration is required. Depending on level of interest, APA may cap the number of attendees.

Registrants are encouraged to pre-submit their questions using the Zoom registration page. Note that APA does not intend to examine or recommend/endorse any specific apps submitted during the registration process. Instead, your questions should focus on, for example, the five levels of the App Evaluation Model and how they can be applied for certain use-cases (e.g., how can the privacy/safety functions of an app interact with my EHR system?).

DISCLAIMER: The Webinar will not provide medical, legal, technical or any other professional advice and will not endorse any particular app or other product or service. The Webinar will explain how to use APA's APA App Advisor and App Evaluation Model. Mention of any app or product within the Webinar should not be construed as an endorsement, advertisement or recommendation for any of the apps reviewed. APA provides the information in the Webinar on an "as is" basis and makes no warranty, expressed or implied, regarding it.

Members of App Advisor's Expert Panel will provide an overview of the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules and how they relate to the use of apps in care. They will discuss the use of Business Associate Agreements between clinicians and app developers, as well as how the ONC's Interoperability and Information Blocking Final Rule addresses the use of apps between patients and their doctors. For the second part of this event, registrants are asked to pre-submit a question (using the space below) to "Ask an App Advisor" a question about our App Evaluation Model and how it can be used in practice. Our presenters will respond to these questions and, if there is time, address other questions in real time using the Q&A feature of Zoom.
