Healthcare and Medical Devices
- Reduces cost and eliminates risk associated with HIPAA compliance
- Protects patient confidentiality
- Reduces cost of safe and effective quality patient care
The Healthcare and Medical Device fields have seen an explosion in both requirements for connectivity and security, intended to improve the speed and efficiency of health care while at the same time protecting the individual patients' rights to privacy. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) has raised the importance of protecting the health information of the patient. In doing so, the patient is protected from financial and possible reputation risks associated with being the recipient of healthcare. From the patient care perspective, medical devices are becoming increasingly connected to improve patient care as a whole. Medical devices are more often than not now participating in the Internet of Things (IoT), where Doctors can now monitor and even administer care to a patient remotely. This is intended to not only improve patient care but also to lower the cost of care itself. It will also improve the accountability of care through blockchain technology, where transactions on prescriptions and medications can be recorded and secured. Today, devices like patient monitors, insulin pumps, and even defibrillators are capable of remote monitoring and control, speeding up the assessment and delivery of care to patients in the field.
Legally, security is a HIPAA requirement and is clearly a concern for medical devices too
Secure connected medical devices will speed the delivery of patient care and reduce costs
Of course with all of this connectivity comes cybersecurity risk. Unfortunately, by hacking into the healthcare system, or worse the devices that are monitoring and administering care to us as patients, hackers gain tremendous knowledge, influence, and power. If the heath information network is compromised, hackers can steal an individuals identity, financial information, or hold for ransom a patient's private information. For those hackers that wish to take this even further, they may want to affect the patient herself or himself, for political, financial, or other reasons. There are too many opportunities for hackers to penetrate the healthcare system and affect the influence they want. The healthcare system as a whole and the devices that monitor and administer care to patients must be protected. By using StealthShield™ and StealthChain™ technology in the healthcare infrastructure and the connected medical devices in the field, the healthcare industry as a whole will continue to protect the privacy of the individual while being able to provide cost-effective safe and effective medical care to the patient. StealthChain will ensure that there is secured and recorded accountability in the healthcare system while StealthShield ensures only StealthPath Trusted™ medical devices and data are used in the delivery of safe and effective medical care.
