The University of Minnesota Earl E. Bakken Medical Devices Center (part of the Institute for Engineering in Medicine), the College of Science and Engineering, and the Department of
Mechanical Engineering presents the 19th Annual Design of Medical Devices Conference, April 6-9, 2020. The world's largest medical device conference will be held at Graduate
Minneapolis & McNamara Alumni Center, located on the University of Minnesota Twin Cities Campus. The DMD Conference brings together medical device designers, manufacturers, researchers and representatives from academia and the public sector.
Health-ISAC (Health Information Sharing and Analysis Center), is a global, non-profit, member-driven organization offering healthcare stakeholders a trusted community and forum for coordinating, collaborating and sharing vital Physical and Cyber Threat Intelligence and best practices with each other.
Membership is open to private & public hospitals, ambulatory providers, health insurance payers, pharmaceutical/biotech manufacturers, laboratory, diagnostic, medical device manufacturers, medical schools, medical R&D organizations and other relevant healthcare stakeholders.
Joining Health-ISAC is one of the best ways health organizations can actively participate to protect the industry and its vital role in critical infrastructure.
Medical device vendors used to be able to ship a device, hope that there were no cybersecurity issues, and address problems as they were found. Today, leading device vendors build security features into their devices before they ship, and win market share as a result.
MedCrypt brings security features to medical devices, from pacemakers to surgical robots, in a few lines of code. The exponential growth of connected devices in healthcare combined with the FDA mandate to “bake in” security into devices means the best solution is one that secures devices, not the hospital network.
A medical device may look like just another IoT device, but its regulatory and usage requirements require a healthcare-first approach to cybersecurity. MedCrypt is built specifically for medical devices, which means clinical functionality is always the highest priority.
Virta Labs builds security tools for a world full of medical devices. Their BlueFlow software helps HDOs sustainably assess and manage cybersecurity risks of medical devices without disrupting clinical workflow. Founded in 2014, Virta Labs is dedicated to helping healthcare IT focus on the risks that matter.
