The challenge


The possibility of a health data breach is arguably the biggest worry keeping healthcare IT leaders up at night. Privacy protections have been part of healthcare IT systems for some time, creating a shift in focus now to strengthening systems against cyber-attacks.


As health networks are delivering more care in home and other external settings, IT systems are no longer just managing data that is created—and stays—onsite. The increase in the volume and types of devices and data opens up still more opportunities for compromise.


But budget priorities compete. Technologies need to be resource- and cost-efficient, while still assuring the highest levels of cybersecurity and without compromise to performance.

The opportunity


Connected health technologies have the potential to transform the way healthcare is delivered, by allowing consumer and health professionals to connect more easily and make better-informed decisions. With peace of mind that such technologies are secure, health systems can confidently pursue these promising opportunities.


As such, healthcare IT leaders need solutions that deliver on their core clinical value but are also backed by a manufacturer’s commitment to and understanding that the minimum requirements for security is just the starting point.


Philips Healthcare is committed to the deployment of comprehensive security plans that assure the safety of medical devices, business enterprise information and personal data. So, you can be secure in the confidentiality, integrity and availability of critical data and the systems that house it.
