Think Tank - 10:45 am - 11:10 am

Medical device security will become an increasing concern for healthcare organizations, particularly as more of these devices are connected to the Internet, internal networks, and Wi-Fi. The increasing connectedness these medical devices will force more and more healthcare organizations to implement security solutions. 

Pre-market challenges:
  1. Insecure product development
  2. Lax FDA approval process especially for patient safety devices with internet connectivity 

Post-market challenges:
  1. Ineffective procurement processes
  2. Lack of central management and real time visibility
  3. Decoupled management by IT and Biomedical Engineering.
