The safest medical device is one that is unplugged and turned off. This is also a completely unrealistic way of addressing the growing adoption of connectivity and the associated security risks, let alone delivering improved patient outcomes.

Join Chris Ault, senior product manager at QNX Software Systems, and Tech Online as we examine what you will want to consider when enabling wireless connectivity for your medical devices. We’ll also share best practices for security and performance.

Register and attend this webinar to learn about:

  • Software design and its implications on connectivity
  • How the FDA is addressing connectivity for medical devices
  • A strategy and approach that simplifies medical device connectivity
  • Healthcare-specific protocols such as DICOM, HL7, and Continua HDP
  • Communication standards such as Bluetooth, Bluetooth low energy, dual band Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G/LTE, NFC, Ethernet, and USB
