Virtual Symposium | Biomedical Device Exposure: Highest Impact, Least Managed Healthcare Risk

2019 Crowe Healthcare Virtual Symposium

| 3/8/2019

The number of biomedical devices used to diagnose, monitor, prevent, and treat diseases and medical conditions have grown exponentially over the past few years. Devices are getting smaller, more powerful, and more network connected. And while these advances are powerful tools in the hands of healthcare professionals, they may be the biggest under managed risk in the organization. Keeping up with the changes in technology and the impact integrated biomedical devices can have may be a daunting task, but one that must get attention at all levels of the organization.

By viewing this on-demand webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Recognize patient safety risks related to biomedical devices, such as a remote change to medication dosing or changes to software designed to regulate a patient’s condition
  • Discuss potential risks to HIPPA compliance, such as patient information stored directly on network connected devices
  • Identify network related risks, such as the ability of hackers to access the larger network through an integrated biomedical device 

Patients and health providers are reaping the benefits of biomedical devices on a daily basis; however, the risk associated with these devices is too often overlooked or undermanaged. Do not miss the chance to hear practical steps your organization can take to identify and assess this critical area of the operation.
