Telehealth Cybersecurity: Secure Remote Patient Monitoring Ecosystem

Wednesday, August 11 at 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM PDT
Caesars, Forum 123
The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) published a draft practice guide discussing approaches in applying privacy and cybersecurity measures in safeguarding a telehealth remote patient monitoring (RPM) solution. As the NCCoE developed approaches that were based on the NIST frameworks, they collaborated with several solutions providers that included healthcare delivery organizations, telehealth platform providers, and technology manufacturers. Collectively, the group evolved an understanding of the challenges associated with RPM. Healthcare technology practitioners will learn about the complexities associated with deploying RPM solutions and take away concepts that may apply to their own RPM deployments. NCCoE presenters will explain thoughts on privacy and cybersecurity risk, approaches needed to understand those risks, and a means to mitigate risk in serving their remote patient community.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the NCCoE telehealth RPM practice guide (NIST SP 1800-30)
  • Explain the clinical use case for which the RPM practice guide is geared
  • Relate the collaborative process in developing (NIST SP 1800-30)
