Wireless Infrastructure Wireless Access Point Core enterprise architecture Wireless Client Device Device that supports wireless communication Multiple wireless protocol solutions WiFi with Bluetooth Complex wireless authentication schemes
Security Architecture Influence Clinician Business owner Medical device or software manufacturer Federal and local government Internal and external auditor Information technology industry Information technology team
Wireless Security Challenge Evolution Rapidly evolving markets Rapidly evolving technology standard Attractive modalities Automation revolution Strategic vs. tactical risk mitigation Technology acquisition model
Clinician Requirements Low risk (do no harm) Extensive mobility Ease of use Universal access Fast Available Reliable
Technology Requirements Medical Technology Manufacturer Have limited enterprise integration capabilities Have solution requirements that differ drastically Information Technology Manufacturer Have solution requirements that change rapidly Have solution requirements for common devices Information Technology Teams Have infrastructure SLA requirements Have chosen platform requirements
Governance Requirements HIPAA HITECH Act FDA FAA JCAHO NIH Federal and State Law PCI DSS Record retention GLP 21CFR58 Meaningful Use NIST, ISO, ITIL, and ATNA Etc.
Wireless Use Case Smartpump Technology Improves patient safety Improves quality controls Improves ongoing maintenance Improves clinical workflow Impacted technology areas Wireless 802.11 infrastructure Clinical platform risk factor Support roles and responsibilities
Problem Solving for X X is the future of HealthCare Information Technology Future challenges Infrastructure must be reasonably priced, portable, and leverage existing support models Infrastructure must be reliable, scalable, safe, and secure Consolidate governing bodies and standards Ubiquitous assistance and align incentives
