Ahead of this week’s 5th annual mHealth Summit, mHealthWatch caught up with Jay Savaiano, Director of Business Development for Healthcare practices at CommVault, for an exclusive one-on-one to discuss the future of mHealth and his company’s role in the digital age of healthcare.
MHW: What is CommVault most eager to discuss or showcase at the mHealth Summit?
Jay: This year’s conversation, for most vendors, will likely revolve around the changing mobile landscape and the varied, but significant compliance concerns around patient health information. Given the recent discussions over data security in the health and government markets, this is a critical time to re-evaluate policies, particularly those around BYOD and BYOC (Bring Your Own Cloud).

The organization is encouraging everyone to keep their guests safe this holiday season with tips from the Home Food Safety program, a collaboration between the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and ConAgra Foods.
