Practical Approach to Securing Your Patient’s Journey

Medical device security initiatives over the last decade have been instantiated through IT due to their characteristics as an edge computing device. As a result, healthcare organizations have had to take some time to understand the operational implications of applying traditional security methodologies when mitigating threats that may impact care delivery and patient safety. While this approach has yielded innovations in technology that baselines communications behavior, device configurations, and visibility into specialized network protocols, we still need to account for context from clinical and operational workflows.

At a time of extreme pressure and stress for practicing physicians, one of the key areas of focus around the topic of EHR optimization has become the overall effort to avert physician burnout. Among the issues involved:

  • First of all, what is physician burnout, in the context of EHR use? What do we know about its causes, and sources of relief?
  • What are the key areas in which EHRs can be optimized in the physician workflow, but which still require ongoing effort and strategy?
  • What are the leading-edge organizations doing in this area?
  • What are the biggest challenges to EHR optimization to improve workflow and ease physician burnout?
  • What are the biggest lessons learned so far in this area?
  • What does this journey into EHR optimization look like, healthcare system-wide, in the next few years?
