Cybersecurity task force addresses medical device safety

In an effort to harmonize the work being done in hospitals and by device manufacturers to address medical device vulnerabilities, Vizient has formed the Medical Device Cybersecurity Task Force. The mission of the task force is to provide leadership and facilitate collaboration to minimize the risk and cost of medical device cybersecurity by fostering standard practices.

“The goal is to help reduce cybersecurity risks and the cost of assessing risk. One of the key near-term deliverables is a multi-phase roadmap that will help advance the cybersecurity maturity posture of the entire health care industry,” said Ross Carevic, director, technology sourcing operations at Vizient. The Vizient task force includes information security leaders from 25 member health systems. It will also engage device manufacturers, suppliers, cybersecurity consultants, government and industry experts.
