Device Safety and Security

CLOSING THE LOOP ON DEVICE SAFTEY AND SECURITY

Maintaining the safety and security of medical devices is critical to ensuring the safety of patients. With cybersecurity threats on the rise, increased scrutiny of medical devices by governing bodies, numerous vendors to manage to find patches, compensating controls, and other remediation fixes; leveraging new solutions to ensure clients’ medical devices are safe, secure, and available for patient use has never been more important.

There is little debate about the reality of and importance of cybersecurity. Not all risks warrant intervention, so what is an acceptable level of risk? Each health system has a unique toleration for risk, and adopting a one-size-fits-all technology approach may leave health systems wondering if they are making tangible improvements to risk posture.

TRIMEDX is uniquely focused on putting health systems at the center of lowering risk posture by combining unmatched technology, knowledge, and data with over 50+ years of combined clinical engineering and cybersecurity expertise while allowing for flexibility to improve processes and risk.

The TRIMEDX CYBER solution delivers unparalleled visibility to connected medical device inventory, access to the most complete content library, and support from TRIMEDX CYBER specialists to facilitate:

  • Full inventory visibility: A comprehensive connected and contactable medical device inventory
  • Monitoring over 40 external sites for vulnerabilities
  • Real-time monitoring and threat detection
  • Complete remediation: Advocacy with OEMs to acquire OEM-validated software patches/compensating controls and unique remediations
  • Propriety content library: Leverage the most extensive content library for proper risk identification and quicker patching or application of compensating controls
  • A centralized team of dedicated TRIMEDX CYBER specialists, certified through the TRIMEDX CYBER Academy’s custom-built curriculum for medical devices and cybersecurity, to aid in vulnerability identification and all aspects of remediation

All data is available through TRIMEDX Clinical Asset Informatics, which provides real-time access to vulnerability status through the vulnerability tracker. Health systems can also request work and monitor progress through the Threats and Projects dashboard and watch the organization’s and each device’s risk dynamically change over time with the TRIMEDX Dynamic Risk Score℠.

TRIMEDX helps prioritize cybersecurity projects based on the proprietary Dynamic Risk Score for each device. The TRIMEDX Dynamic Risk Score℠ is the only score that changes with new and existing vulnerabilities, OEM responses, and real-time device attributes.

The Dynamic Risk Score incorporates information on three dimensions:

  1. Cyber vulnerability risk
  2. Device risk
  3. Patient safety

Benefits

TRIMEDX puts health systems in control of risk posture. With more visibility given, health systems can see into the threats and vulnerabilities that exist within their medical devices and can more accurately access and determine what they are comfortable tolerating versus what they want to focus on securing. By partnering with a trusted partner with over 50 years of experience in clinical engineering and cybersecurity, health systems can have the confidence that, once parameters have been set or devices have been identified for remediation, risk posture will improve enabling health systems to better secure the health and safety of their hospital and their patients.

Cybersecurity threats can materialize at any time, which is why having the right technology in place for continuous monitoring of connected medical devices is critical. Through the partnership between TRIMEDX and Medigate, clients benefit from real-time monitoring and threat detection. This sophisticated system monitors all network behavior, identifying anomalies in network activity and reducing false alerts.

In addition, the combination of real-time monitoring and the detailed device profile captured for each connected medical device combined with our extensive and propriety content library, allows TRIMEDX to deliver the Dynamic Risk Score. This identifies connected medical devices at the highest risk and provides a recommended plan of action and prioritization through TRIMEDX’s Clinical Asset Informatics.

Benefits

Through continuous monitoring of over 40 external sources, real-time monitoring and remediation of cybersecurity vulnerabilities, the TRIMEDX CYBER solution helps health systems protect the safety of their patients and minimizes the impact of attacks like ransomware, estimated to cost over $8M per incident.*
