The Importance of Cybersecurity for Medical IoT Devices
As the equipment in today's medical imaging facilities and hospitals continue to become more sophisticated, the threat level for digital breaches rises with alarming sophistication. As early as twenty years ago, the overwhelming majority of medical imaging equipment was mechanical in nature. Meaning, any repairs or upgrades were made with screwdrivers, wrenches, and tubes. However, the medical imaging equipment that today's healthcare professionals rely on is essentially an internet-connected computer with few moving parts. These machines are part of the Internet of Things or IoT.
Just as our email accounts are subject to malicious computer viruses, so are these IoT-based medical imaging machines, and they are ripe for the taking.

Are you interested in seeing how Authpal by Availity's Prior Authorization and Patient Access can benefit your practice?
Authpal by Availity automates the prior authorization process, making it faster and easier to receive confirmation from the health plan. Instead of waiting days and following up via phone, fax, and email, your staff can determine almost immediately whether an authorization is required, submit it, and receive confirmation. When authorizations are automated, your staff can focus on high value-activities like patient care, satisfaction, and scheduling.
The Patient Access solution gives access to real-time patient data, allowing your front-desk staff to accurately resolve patient collections at or before the point of service. Our solution streamlines the patient collections workflow process from the moment a patient checks-in to the time that the claim is paid.
