An emerging trend in the U.S. MedTech Industry is the increasing attention to cybersecurity. Through the continuous establishment of regulations, more and more is expected of U.S. medical manufacturers with regard to the security of medical devices, data, and information technology that ultimately affect patient safety. In order to meet these expectations, medical manufacturers turn to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for guidelines. It is through voluntary measures such as the benefit-risk framework that U.S. medical manufacturers can detect what level of cybersecurity risks are present in the medical devices, thus communicate these to end-users. ANSI UL 2900-2-1, for example, is a recently recognized consensus standard that provides a framework for developers and medical manufacturers to assess cybersecurity risk, thus improving the safety of the devices.
Connected devices and wearable technologies are facilitating the collection, assimilation, and analysis of Big Data. This data drives deep analytics and algorithms that allow for more informed decisions on the part of care providers. This new digital health ecosystem is featured in our latest medical infographic.

Why is it vital?
Attending MD&M West in Anaheim next week? Visit IMS in booth #2362 and learn why many of the world's leading medical device manufacturers partner with us for their electronics needs. We provide global, end-to-end solutions using a low volume, high mix production model. Most importantly, we understand that when it comes to selecting an EMS partner, the right fit matters.
While we're no strangers to MD&M, we do have some new and exciting events planned for this year's show. Be sure to follow us on Twitter, where we'll be sharing live updates and contest details straight from our booth.
