How to Overcome Challenges in Securing Medical Devices

Networked medical devices have brought significant improvements in patient care and patient safety.  However, those improvements have not come without assuming additional risk.  While old manual processes have been retired with the advent of networked medical devices and electronic medical records (EMRs), new ones have taken their place.  The largest challenge healthcare organizations face, almost as large as the transitioning to EMRs, is the organizational realignment and introduction of new processes to accommodate this switch.  We will talk about how medical device vendors can be cooperative, and how to communicate across the wish lists.  In addition, we will discuss the existing regulations, and what they really mean in terms of changing processes.
