Blue Cross in PA to Offer PHR on Cell Phones

January 25, 2007

In an story from InfomationWeek, Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania plans to offer a PHR on cell phones to its 600,000 members.  The informaiton will come from claims data and includes “recent diagnoses, prescribed medications, allergies, and immunization history.” It will also be accessible from PDAs and PCs. “

To ensure the secure wireless access to that data, BCNEPA has licensed Diversinet Corp.’s MobiSecure Wallet and Vault soft token, wireless authentication products.”

But how familiar are users with mobile security and how much do they trust it? The potential advantages I see include its portability (in case of an ER visit) and the ability to deliver health reminders.
