There are stringent criteria medical devices must meet to be classed as trustworthy, alongside the software within them – but what does that consist of? Learn more about the importance of trustworthy medical devices in part one of our Trustworthy Devices blog series.
Throughout our Telehealth and Telemedicine blog series, we looked at the differences between connected health technologies, types of connected medical devices, the basics of data security and privacy, key HIPAA compliance regulations, why app developers and vendors should implement strong cybersecurity measures to meet these regulations and the possible repercussions that could occur if they aren’t implemented. In this blog, we review what this all means.
With digital connectivity of medical devices being needed more than ever in healthcare, it is important to learn more about the types of medical devices that connect data, what does data governance mean, and why is privacy and security essential in Telehealth.
With the usage of connected health technologies increasing greatly, it is important for us to understand the differences between Connected Health, Digital Health, and Telehealth and Telemedicine which are often used interchangeably.
With the increased need for ventilators due to COVID-19, manufactures are ramping up production to meet the soaring demand but are still falling short. Industrial heavyweights such as Ford, GM, Tesla, Dyson, and others have responded to the call by governments to address the ventilator shortage problem.

Increasing risk of cyberthreats looms as the world comes to a standstill from the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. At the same time, the global healthcare system struggles to address the growing number of people testing positive for the virus.
However, as we become an increasingly connected healthcare ecosystem, more vulnerabilities present themselves. There is a new wave of cyberattacks, particularly in healthcare, and it is imminent to “Safeguard against COVID-19 Personification,” as we take a look at securing critical healthcare services at risk.
