The Certification Program is a voluntary program for apps intended for use in the U.S. Initially, the program will focus on English language apps with additional languages expected to be added in the future. The draft standards, while not designed to determine clinical efficacy, address four areas: Operability, Privacy, Security, and Content. Each area consists of multiple standards and associated performance requirements. In developing the standards, Happtique met with and received feedback from a number of private organizations and federal agencies, including the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), Mobile Marketing Association (MMA), GSM Association (GSMA), mobile Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (mHIMSS), Association for Competitive Technology (ACT), U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Federal Trade Commission (FTC), and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC). For the critical areas of privacy, security and usability, the standards draw heavily on work that has been done by MMA, GSMA, mHIMSS, and ACT on these issues.
