A podcast featuring our CEO, Justine Bone, explaining the need for risk management and security in the healthcare industry.
Risk Management and Security for Hospital Medical Devices
MIAMI, Fla., June, 2018 – Risk management and security for hospital medical devices needs more than technology, providing only a partial and not a complete solution. Consequently, CEO suites feel greater urgency to identify and prevent potential cyber-security threats before they occur.
Health data has become far more valuable than even credit card data for cyber-security hackers and thieves to sell on the black market.
In the podcast, information management and security expert, Justine Bone elaborates why relying technology alone as a strategy places more hospitals at risk of losing trust with providers, patients, and the communities they serve.
Medical devices used in the hospital have proliferated, from monitors to scanners to electronic tools, such as the EMR, that record confidential patient data. Many hospital medical, clinical, and back-office users rely on medical devices to accurately record, view, and maintain patient diagnostic and treatment records.
As medical devices remain in widespread use in the hospital, many devices become vulnerable with age and out-of-date software. Potential security breaches are a constant threat. The demand to make devices interoperable with each other adds one more layer of complexity to the mandated need for patient privacy.
