Securing IoT - Essential Steps in Ensuring Patient Safety

HIMSS Media

IoT has transformed healthcare in a significant way and is a game-changer for providers who embrace next-generation technology. Technologies that track patient data, improve healthcare operations, and provide remote and mobile patient monitoring help reduce costs and improve delivery of patient care. The variety and novelty of these devices introduces a range of cybersecurity concerns related to the Confidentiality-Integrity and Availability (CIA) triad that underpins HIPAA compliance, patient data protection, and overall information security. There are steps you can take, both before your medical devices get hacked and after it happens. Learn how to detect intruders and expel them quickly so that you can maintain your security posture and quality of patient care.

People use health care services for many reasons: to cure illnesses and health conditions, to mend breaks and tears, to prevent or delay future health care problems, to reduce pain and increase quality of life, and sometimes merely to obtain information about their health status and prognosis. Health care utilization can be appropriate or inappropriate, of high or low quality, expensive or inexpensive. The study of trends in health care utilization provides important information on these phenomena and may spotlight areas that may warrant future indepth studies because of potential disparities in access to, or quality of, care.
