Status of this Document

This is a draft of the Emory Mobile Application Review Process. This document describes the process in use, but this process has not yet been documented. Once this document is finalized, it is anticipated that the Emory units involved in this process will meet to adjust and recommend a formal review process and present that to appropriate governance groups.

Step 1: Office of Technology Transfer Intellectual Property Analysis

Emory units desiring to release mobile applications should contact the Emory Office of Technology Transfer (OTT) for a review of the intellectual property and commercial prospects of the application. This process includes completion of an IP disclosure. In general, any application owned by Emory will be released under the Emory brand and through the Emory App Store or Marketplace accounts. There may be exceptions to this general rule in the case of collaborations between Emory and other partners or in a case where technology has been licensed to a third party. Typically, OTT will kick off this review process and coordinate the review with the other units listed in steps 2, 3, and 4 below. Panya Taysavang ( is the primary contact with OTT.

Step 2: Communications & Marketing Branding Review

Mobile applications that are to be released under the Emory brand undergo a branding review with Communications & Marketing. Communications & Marketing will be preparing a set of written guidelines and resources for the proper branding of Emory mobile applications. Stanis Kodman ( is the point of contact with Communications & Marketing.

Step 3: Legal Counsel Review

OTT will inform and consult with Emory Legal Counsel on the outcome of the IP review in step 1 and any specific plans for commercializing or charging for the mobile applications, its terms of use, etc.

Step 4: Office of Information Technology App Store Posting Review

The Emory Office of Information Technology performs a high-level technical review of the application to determine if there is a need for any detailed security and compliance reviews of the application. For example, if the application collects and stores ePHI, credit card information, or other compliance related data, Emory OIT will inform the owners of the application of relevant policies and any practices required by those policies. Daniel Palmer ( is the contact person for the OIT posting review.

Once this technical review is completed, Emory OIT publishes the application on behalf of Emory University. OIT needs the following artifacts from the application owners in order to submit applications:
