As the proliferation of connected and complex medical devices grows, healthcare providers are more susceptible to cyberattacks.
Networks enable the use of critical resources, including telehealth services, medical IoT technology,and staff and personal devices. It is critical to have a reliable WiFi network to support these devices.
The pace of innovation in the ICU is orders of magnitude slower than that of the cath lab and OR, and the COVID-19 crisis has pushed, tested, and exposed ICUs for lacking state-of-the-art technology and resources.
Augmented reality and extended reality will play a front-and-center role in patient care.
As hackers target blind spots in wireless communications, medical devices running on various networks across the wireless spectrum pose big risks for healthcare facilities.
Medical device companies are committing significant resources to the fight against Covid-19. Collaboration tools can help expedite product design while supporting evolving compliance standards.
The most successful medical device companies have the same characteristic in common: They’re cross-functional. Whether it be the device design and development activities or quality and regulatory affairs, every operation works together to produce and market medical devices that improve patients’ lives.
Vulnerability sharing arms stakeholders with the information they need to assess devices, minimize cybersecurity risks and proactively mitigate emerging risks to prevent exploitation.
A lot of promises are made by organizations about making systems more intuitive, convenient and user-centric, but in reality most improvements tend to be designed to meet regulatory or internal system needs rather than better serve the people who use them. The user experience needs to be modernized, especially in heavily regulated industries where inaccurate or non-compliant labeling is laden with risk.
Medtech companies often struggle to connect to their in-hospital devices in real time due to challenges with hospital network connectivity. Now, more than ever, reliable network connectivity is essential. And the solution lies with a new use of radio technology.
