Cybersecurity Risks of Telehealth Remote Patient Monitoring

11:30am - 12:30pm Thursday, March 12
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W230A

Description

Healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs) are leveraging a combination of telehealth capabilities, such as remote patient monitoring (RPM) and videoconferencing, to treat patients in their homes. While these technologies enhance a caregiver’s ability to care for patients battling chronic illness or with limited access to healthcare services, they also expose the HDO to increased cybersecurity risks. The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence at NIST is developing an example solution to help secure the telehealth RPM environment. This presentation will help healthcare IT professionals explore the risks associated with telehealth RPM and detail a standards-based solution to mitigate those risks. The session will review the end-to-end architecture that make up the telehealth ecosystem, and determine where security and privacy vulnerabilities may exist. The session will detail security controls that can be implemented to help secure the RPM ecosystem and to protect patients’ privacy.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify risks associated with telehealth remote patient monitoring (RPM) ecosystem
  • Discuss security controls based on NIST Cybersecurity Framework and key industry standards
  • Describe sample technologies that can be deployed to help secure telehealth RPM ecosystem
  • Demonstrate an example solution to mitigate risks in telehealth RPM ecosystem
