Medical Device companies have typically shied away from design reuse because of the fear of a single point of failure. However due to market pressures, more and more medical device companies must embrace reuse to increase time to market. Unlike common perception, strategic and effective reuse can actually benefit regulated industries like medical devices by expediting compliance. This webcast will discuss the benefits of reuse as well as concepts of continuous engineering that can improve quality for medical devices.
State University of New York Upstate Medical University faces the same challenges as many other hospital organizations—increased pressure to improve efficiency and preserve capital.

In February 2016, the computer network at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center (HPMC) was down for more than a week as the Southern California hospital worked to recover from a ransomware attack. Hospital administrators declared an internal emergency as staff struggled to access patient records and computer systems critical for patient care.
As the healthcare industry continues to move forward into an age of big data, optimization, and greater coordination of care through the capabilities of better networking technologies, opportunities have never been greater to use technology to truly improve how healthcare professionals interacts with patients. However, growing dependence on your network for everything from medical records to billing information can also mean that healthcare networks hold greater amounts of data than ever before. This makes them a tempting target for hackers.

The Internet of Things (IoT) has rapidly transformed the digital landscape and the world we live in. Intelligent devices and sensors connect smart cars, robotic manufacturing equipment, smart medical equipment, smart cities, industrial control systems, and much more in a way that improves lives and saves businesses billions of dollars. But along with its benefits, rapid IoT growth introduces a new dimension of security vulnerabilities that dramatically escalates the nature and seriousness of cybercrime risks.
In addition to traditional confidentiality cyber risks, IoT threats include attacks that can:
• Render smart appliances useless
• Shut down city power grids
• Threaten lives through hacked pacemakers and other medical devices.
Such security flaws not only endanger lives, frustrate customers, and disrupt business operations, but they create significant cost and public relations damage for IoT developers and manufacturers.
