Cybersecurity Challenges of Connected Medical Devices
June 8, 2017, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Robert Maliff, Director Applied Solutions, ECRI Institute. Medical devices are no longer just standalone systems at the bedside, but are now connected to other devices and the electronic medical record system to aid in documentation and real-time patient care decisions. While hospitals often have policies and practices related to information technologies security, the diverse world of connected medical devices (the Internet of Medical Things) may not be fully included in these programs. This presentation discusses what is different about healthcare when it comes to cybersecurity and medical devices, and how hospitals can address these challenges.
