This activity is supported through educational grant from Abbott and Deloitte.
MediaSphere Medical LLC and Ciné-Med.
This activity is designed to address the following ABMS/IOM competencies: Patient Care, Medical Knowledge, and Practice-Based Learning.
The symposium will evaluate how medical technology advancements must be balanced against cybersecurity risk and review the policies and procedures in place to provide continuous assessments and mitigations to protect against cybersecurity risk as it applies to implanted medical devices connected to a network. Medical technology with remote management solutions can improve patient outcomes, Including quality of life, decrease in-office visits, and reduce healthcare costs. However, as medical technology becomes increasingly interconnected via the Internet, hospital networks, and smartphones, there exists some risk for exploitation of cybersecurity vulnerabilities.
This educational symposium has been developed to raise awareness through the insights of leading governmental and other cybersecurity experts who will provide reviews surrounding the current and future direction of medical technology cybersecurity for increasing standards of patient care. The symposium lectures and panel discussions are complemented with dedicated Q&A sessions that enable interactive audience participation with the leading faculty experts.
This activity has been developed to meet the educational needs of electrophysiologists, cardiologists and other physicians, associated professionals, and healthcare providers.
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants will be able to:
- Evaluate the importance of maintaining and enhancing medical device integrity in the dynamic and ever evolving cybersecurity environment, while considering the potential patient health, safety and confidentiality impacts of cybersecurity in the context of medical technologies in healthcare.
- Review the balance for protecting patient safety and promoting the development of innovative technologies and improved technology performance.
- Review how to ensure the evaluation of cybersecurity is integrated with a holistic assessment of potential impacts on patient health, safety, and security of patient data, and health information, so patient and physician needs are balanced, and clinical perspectives considered with cybersecurity throughout the product lifecycle.
- Gain understanding of the cybersecurity policies and procedures and communication processes that govern implantable devices throughout the product lifecycle.
- Gain understanding of evolving communication standards and tools of the future that will enhance cybersecurity of implanted medical devices.
