HEALTHCARE SECURITY FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
Boston, MA - September 11 - 13, 2017
Medical device manufacturers currently provide little to no security features, and the length in time involved in making necessary design modifications and getting the necessary FDA approvals means that every device currently in use, and devices to be introduced in the next 3 – 5 years, can be considered legacy devices and therefore, potential security issues.
An integrated approach to medical device management is necessary. Integrating device management and security across their life cycle is the subject of this presentation and discussion led by William Parkinson, senior director, Enterprise Solutions and Global Lead for Healthcare Strategy. In addition to device security, key themes covered include understanding total cost of ownership, cost-effective maintenance, compliance, and capital planning for the healthcare organization.
