Internet of Medical Things: How to Design and Deliver Secure Connected Products
The Internet of Medical Things, or Healthcare IoT, refers to a connected infrastructure of medical devices and software applications that can communicate with various healthcare IT systems. Frost & Sullivan estimates that there were 4.5 billion IoMT devices in 2015, a number that they expect to increase to between 20 and 30 billion by 2020. As the IoMT device landscape heats up and hospitals delve more into remote care, healthcare systems need to protect each and every IoT device from potential cybersecurity risks. To do this, medical device manufacturers should integrate the power of automation into a rock-solid digital technology foundation, making it easier to stay on top of the security needed to protect both the device and the patient, while also adhering to regulatory compliance.
