Cybersecurity Concerns and Medical Devices: Lessons From a Pacemaker Advisory

JAMA. 2017; 318(21): 2077-2078.
Authors: Daniel B. Kramer, Kevin Fu
“Medical devices increasingly include capabilities for wireless communication and remote monitoring systems that relay clinical information from patients to clinicians. For example, many cardiac implantable electrical devices can transmit data regarding arrhythmia burden and heart failure metrics with minimal patient effort. This technology can improve patient care, but also introduces possible risks to data security and patient safety.”
