While digital technology has transformed every industry, the trend is perhaps more visible in the healthcare industry than in many others. Care providers at hospitals move from room to room, accessing myriad electronic devices and records to provide the best care possible.
Internet-of-Medical-Things (IoMT) devices prolong life, improve its quality, and make the relationship between the patient and the care team less transactional. Besides, digital technology enables providers in different healthcare organizations to coordinate care more seamlessly.
While providers and innovators in the healthcare sector are dedicated to saving lives and curing disease, their systems are a very attractive target for cybercriminals, and hospital systems and records continue to be breached.
