Step 1: Library and Information Technology App Store Posting Review
Emory Library and Information Technology (LITS) 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. See the template for this cursory review. George Wang (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the contact person for the LITS posting review. LITS will create a copy of the review template specifically for the requested application review and ensure the application owners have access to the template to complete the information. LITS staff will help complete this template as needed.
Step 2: Complete the Appropriate Internal Distribution Submission Forms
The following are links to the Internal Submission Templates:
- Internal iOS Distribution Submission Template
- Internal Android Distribution Submission Template
Subsequent App Update Submissions
For subsequent application updates, application owners should update the technical review template and if there are substantial changes, request another review. For example, if the nature of the data being collected or stored by the application has changed and now ePHI is being collected when it was not before, then a new review should be scheduled. Application owners should also update the internal submission forms relevant to their applications for each subsequent submission.
Mobile and Mobile Web Application Initiative Inventory
Emory is presently exploring options for an internal mobile app store and registry. In the interim, a list of known Emory mobile applications serves this purpose.
