Privacy Challenges in the Internet of Health Things

10:00am - 11:00am Wednesday, March 11
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W303A

Description

The ubiquity and availability of healthcare data collected by new internet connected and sensor-enabled health and medical devices (the ‘Internet of Health Things’) is unquestionably a boon for healthcare providers and patients. Yet, the same effect inevitably increases the cybersecurity attack vectors available to hackers and cyber-criminals who use ever-evolving techniques to exploit security vulnerabilities in the healthcare industry. As connected health devices weave the internet of things into the delivery of healthcare services, the security of those devices is of vital importance to policymakers and healthcare practitioners. To ensure the success of connected health innovations, we must find effective ways to understand the current threat landscape and identify how health systems should manage risk to protect patient data. This panel will explore the latest viewpoints on how to change the policy and business environments to provide American patients with dynamic and responsive privacy protections.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the discrete ways in which the use of connected health tech and patient-generated health data improves patient outcomes while reducing costs
  • Identify the latest opportunities and challenges facing the healthcare privacy field, and illuminate key business, policy, and legal trends in healthcare privacy
  • Prepare stakeholders on how to change the policy and business environments to provide American patients with dynamic and responsive privacy protections
