The Internet of Things enables Healthcare Organizations an Unprecedented Level of Technology Interoperability
The linking of objects as diverse as smartphones, medical devices, cars, and household appliances to sensors, each other, and the Internet is underway, and it’s known as the Internet of Things (IoT). This trend is transforming healthcare by increasing efficiency, lowering costs, and improving patient care, but with it comes various security aspects that organizations must consider. To address these aspects, Mark O’Neill and I will host a webinar on July 23rd titled “Securing the Internet of Things in Healthcare.”
The IoT offers great promise to the healthcare field, where its principles are already being applied to improve access to care, increase the quality of care, and — most importantly — reduce costs. The IoT plays a significant role in a broad range of healthcare applications, from managing chronic diseases at one end of the spectrum to preventing disease at the other. Yet, as the world grows more connected, the need for a new security model becomes even more critical. The IoT in healthcare requires innovative solutions to make sure that it securely fulfills its potential and preserves the convenience it represents.
Attendees of this webinar will learn:
• The FDA’s recommendations for secure communication with IoT-connected medical devices
• 10 security considerations for the IoT as it relates to the various models in the healthcare industry
• Healthcare use cases for IoT
