re: HHS Releases Health IT Safety Plan
Agreed that accountability is key to understanding the problems, and retention of unaltered records has an argument here. The real difficulty lies in real time radio and one must first know what is possible with all of the vectors of attack. Unfortunately, any response to medical devices is only as good as the integrity of the sensor data from the person/"patient" and their devices. Now we see this report, which proves it is possible to alter sensors via radio.

Securing "endpoints" has never been so important, so difficult, or so personal.

re: HHS Releases Health IT Safety Plan
Accountability is key when it comes to patient safety. Being able to analyze the causes of any adverse effects to patient health and acting upon them to correct the problems is crucial if health IT is to guarantee better patient safety. By having standardized reporting methods and being able to view the causes of these problems we will have a better understanding of what is causing adverse effects on patient safety and will be able to discuss and come up with solutions.

"Adverse patient events" can be directly related to mismatched patient identity and medical device reprogramming. Based on real time sensor data, any falsified information can result in physical harm and even death.

InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
