Gone are the days when loss of PHI was the industry’s biggest worry: We now face a looming patient-safety crisis.Vulnerable medical devices are being recalled and equally vulnerable devices continue to be produced.

In this session, two clinicians-security researchers simulate a medical device breach, demonstrating the peril and possibilities healthcare now confronts in a world of connected, technology-dependent medicine.

Key takeaways:

  • Healthcare cybersecurity threats are now patient safety threats - with real world implications on morbidity and mortality.
  • Collaborations between clinicians and information security professionals can produce secure solutions that lead to delivery of higher quality care.
  • Healthcare delivery organizations and information security firms need to move beyond a data protection, regulatory compliance mindset and tackle this challenge from a clinical outcomes perspective.
