About this Constellation ShortList™

There has been an infiltration of connected medical devices in the hospital networks. Connecting medical devices will improve patient care, but at the same time, it also increases the risk of potential cybersecurity threats Medical devices, like other endpoint systems, can be vulnerable to security breaches, potentially impacting the safety of the patient.

Security is a top board risk, and every CIO must figure out how to get a handle on medical device management in the institution since there is a considerable gap. Healthcare organizations are breaking down the organizational silos where the Biomedical department traditionally managed the medical devices. The future hospital structure will require management of medical devices under IT so it is included in the overall IT security program.
