Healthcare IT has quickly become a powerful instrument for clinicians collecting and documenting patient information in more care settings throughout a hospital. Robust, network-capable devices not only read a patient’s vitals, but also capture, store, aggregate, and transmit patient data to other networks, devices, and applications within the healthcare IT infrastructure, like an EHR system.
The result is a complex partnership between people, information, and technology which ultimately supports the delivery of high-quality patient care. However, interconnectivity can raise security and compliance considerations. In order to help ensure safety, organizations must be able to trust the exchange of information that is facilitated through these medical devices.
Watch this on-demand webinar, featuring Welch Allyn, to learn about access controls for medical devices, including:
- Concerns around cybersecurity threats regarding network-capable medical devices and solutions
- Opportunities and options for secure connected devices that won’t affect clinical usability
- Aligning clinical workflows and data security requirements in order to secure PHI
- Ensuring data integrity in the EHR
