Keywords: Mobile Medical Apps; data security; regulations; data security testing.

Abstract:
In the growing industry of mHealth, mobile medical apps are becoming a popular mechanism for healthcare delivery. Characteristically, these apps are designed to both process and transmit data that is sensitive medical data. Such data is required to be kept private and secure through regulations and legislation. The detections of increased app hacking by security companies and researchers are especially significant amidst today’s rapid growth in healthcare mobile apps. Consequently, security and integrity of the data associated with these apps is a growing concern for the app industry, particularly in the highly regulated medical domain. Until recently, data integrity and security in transmission has not been given serious consideration in the development of mobile medical apps. There are currently no procedures or standard practices for developers of mobile medical apps to assure data integrity and security in transmission. This paper is an overview of existing mobile medical apps data security issues and security practices. We discuss current regulations, standards and best practices concerning data security in mobile medical apps. The paper introduces the concept of a process model and testing suite to assist mobile medical app developers to implement data security requirements to assure the Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability of data in transmission.
