Benesch notes that technologies that don’t fall under HIPAA rules are still accountable when handling consumers’ personal health records (PHR). These include:

• Synched fitness or health devices and their respective apps; • Application programming interfaces (API);

• Consumer inputted information; and

• Other synched devices or apps.
