    The IoMT Security Conundrum:
    Ensuring Clinical Efficiency when Implementing Security Measures

    for Network-Connected Devices


    IT teams are facing new security and compliance concerns as the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) continues to proliferate healthcare environments. Robust devices, designed to streamline clinical workflows are increasingly valuable resources in the delivery of patient care, enabling data to be captured, aggregated, transmitted, and analyzed in real time. However, with these advanced capabilities come new security threats as each device represents a potential point of exposure for patient information.

    Unfortunately, as organizations look to better secure these network-connected devices they face a difficult balancing act: ensuring that security measures do not impede clinical productivity. As these new tools, such as network-connected medical devices and shared mobile devices, move closer to the point of care, the security measures needed to ensure data privacy and compliance can begin to create barriers between clinicians, technology, and the patients they treat.

    If not implemented properly, cumbersome security measures can at best lead to common security work arounds and compliance issues and at worst can lead to data integrity concerns, network security loop holes and even patient safety risks. Therefore, it is critical that IT organizations implement security practices with clinical workflows in mind in order to safely leverage IoMT devices throughout health systems.

    Lessons to be learned:

    • Deep understanding of the most pressing security concerns facing network connected devices today
    • Foundational security practices best suited for network connected devices such as medical and mobile devices
    • Understanding common security and compliance risks faced when security measures are not designed with clinical workflows in mind
    • Critical clinical workflow considerations to factor into security protocols

      Social Determinants of Health and Population Health

      How do I get started?

      With broad agreement that social determinants are important to managing a population’s overall health – Algorex Health deploys a data-driven strategy to understand the propensities and intensities of non-clinical factors that drive health impacts in your membership. The presentation will provide a survey of tools available and strategies to begin making gains on non-clinical interventions to support overall health.

      The presentation will provide organizations with an understanding of:

      • How social determinants of health affect your population’s care and utilization.
      • What data sources are available to measure, survey, and integrate non-clinical factors into my medical management interventions.
      • Tips and guidance on how to orchestrate and align non-clinical and clinical interventions.

      Presenter Details:

      Jacob Luria has led population health analytics projects for over 10 years with top-performing vendors and consultancies. In his role at Algorex Health, he works to bring novel solutions to manage populations at scale.

        Embracing Technology to Improve Patient Engagement and Patient Experience

        As healthcare evolves toward a more patient-centered healthcare system, we have to make healthcare information more accessible and usable for both patients and clinicians. In this age of mobile convenience, patients expect to manage their healthcare in the same way they engage with social media. From wellness apps and wearable devices to patient portals and virtual visits, patients seek more control over their healthcare than ever before. New technologies improve the patient experience — by speaking a language today’s patients can relate to.

        Providers are constantly challenged to incorporate patients more fully as partners in the care process. How can providers use technology to provide more inclusive and engaging care experiences to meet the expectations of ever more demanding healthcare consumers?

        In this session, Maureen Williams, marketing solutions manager for consumer experience at MEDITECH, will explore how your organization can employ technology to improve patient engagement and the consumer experience. She'll discuss today's consumer tools and engagement strategies and provide tips to help your organization create new channels to improve the patient experience. You'll also hear about the challenges of implementing new patient engagement technologies, the financial incentives for your organization, and the critical role that interoperability plays in the process.

        This session will focus on:

        ● What’s important to today’s healthcare consumers

        ● The technologies patients depend on to support their journey to better health

        ● How providers can incorporate the data generated by new technologies into their workflows

        ● Getting the word out to patients and providers about the benefits of new patient engagement technologies
