Mobile communication has been heavily applied in the current healthcare system for health information exchange. Patient information security has become a major concern, especially with the wide adoption of electronic medical records. Mobile Forensics has been utilized by law enforcement to systematically procure and preserve mobile evidence. However, the adoption of mobile forensics in the healthcare lags behind. The goal of our project is to examine the options and to provide recommendations for adoption and customization of mobile forensics in the healthcare field. An open-ended survey of local healthcare and related facilities around Indianapolis has been explored to examine the current status of Mobile Forensics in the healthcare field. The results have been evaluated using statistical analysis. A methodology is being proposed that would use mobile forensics procedures taking into account the regulatory measures that have to be instituted due to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996.
