Cyberthreat Research for the Healthcare Industry

HIMSS Media

The cyberthreat landscape for the healthcare industry continues to evolve with clear evidence that securing connected medical devices require a different approach to that of IT devices. Through year-long research, Zingbox analyzed the underlying vulnerabilities of connected medical devices, identified the particular type of medical devices requiring attention, and the security implications of IoT devices as a whole to the healthcare community. The research also found promising trends in how care providers are improving the security of their network. Join us as we provide the details of our findings.

A frontrunner in the innovative use of medical technology, Sunderby Hospital in Lulea, Sweden, looked at the patient monitor replacement project as an opportunity to raise the level of care they provided. As a result, the implementation went much better than expected and they now have a workflow that allows them to spend more time with their patients and that has actually been lifesaving in some cases. The hospital team had a long list of goals for the project. First, they wanted to have one vendor for monitoring and anesthesia devices and they also wanted to increase the quality of care and clinical workflow by being able to monitor patients virtually anywhere in the hospital. The Dräger solution fit these needs.

Why Providers Should Be Informed About Patient Drug Costs

gotowebinar

As healthcare costs continue to rise, providers are faced with the difficult task of choosing the most effective, affordable treatment at the point of prescribing. In most cases, however, providers do not have enough information to fully understand patients' insurance coverage and out-of-pocket costs. Now that more and more patients are sharing in the cost of their care, this can lead to confusion, dissatisfaction and even non-adherence to prescribed medications. During this webinar, you will hear how leading health systems are enabling providers to make data-driven and evidence-based decisions that help patients get the care they need at prices they can afford.
