Cybersecurity in Medical Devices: Quality System Considerations and Content of Premarket Submissions provides recommendations on what information to include in premarket submissions and emphasizes that cybersecurity is a component of quality system regulation.
Healthcare cyberattacks are becoming more common and more costly—both financially and to patient care continuity. Internet-connected IoMT devices and equipment remain a security concern for healthcare delivery organizations. Deeper collaboration between HDOs, medical device manufacturers and security providers is needed to reduce risk and vulnerability.
The dramatic increase of medical devices in patient care has yielded many benefits. However, this technology also carries various risks, including risks to patient privacy, that must be addressed.
Smart hospitals are revolutionizing health care with the help of AI, IoT and robotics. Following are the latest technology and data analytics tools and trends that are helping these hospitals of the future provide safer, more personalized care.
Connected devices already enable remote patient monitoring by collecting real-time data, such as injection date and time. With time, these benefits are likely to grow. Following are three areas where manufacturers are exploring new uses of digitalization in drug delivery to better understand the needs of patients and healthcare professionals and create more effective devices.
Connected medical devices have many advantages but require a higher level of security. If the medical industry doesn’t improve its cybersecurity posture, it could endanger patient privacy and lives.
The pandemic forced patients and providers to rely on telemedicine, a change that has had a significant impact on the course of care. Experts discuss what can be accomplished with virtual care and what this means for the potential of medical devices.
Patient-administered healthcare is one of the fastest-growing segments in the medtech industry. When the patient becomes the operator, usability requirements are vastly different than those of trained clinicians, which elevates considerations in the design process.
With the ever-increasing adoption of connected devices, the agency is emphasizing the need for effective cybersecurity.
The combination of medtech progress with strides in modern healthcare interoperability will enable preventive care in unprecedented ways.
