Security of Medical Devices Remains Critical Question in Buying Decision
Health Data Management, April 2017
George Gray, CTO & VP of Information & Software Systems for Ivenix, provides considerations for healthcare organizations in assessing infusion device security as part of their buying decision. Medical device security continues to be a concern, and customers need to challenge vendor assertions that their pumps and other devices are secure by asking what types of vulnerabilities the devices have as well as the plan and schedule for reducing vulnerabilities.
“Many potential buyers are not aware that pumps are small computers and prospective customers should be asking the same questions they would ask when assessing any other type of information system.”
