With an increased adoption of connected clinical technologies, a hostile environment has emerged posing threats to the security of these technologies and the health systems that use them. This has created a growing need to embed robust security practices into an enterprise wide strategy to protect against patient safety risks, unauthorized access, and cyberattacks. While we have a number of standards, published articles, and documents to refer from, experts from Banner Health and Intermountain Healthcare recognized the need for an easy-to-follow and implementable recipe for healthcare technology management professionals. This interactive session will include key elements of education, procurement, risk management, and network security that will help move past the initial trouble and get to implementation.
