Current Healthcare Eco System: Challenges & Opportunities

Ensuring HIPAA security in today’s health IT environment requires HDOs hit a daily trifecta of HIPAA compliance, cyber security, and medical device management to ensure the IT infrastructure and PHI is protected. The FDA’s Guidance states there is a shared responsibility among health care facilities, health care providers, patients, and manufacturers. This collaboration of stakeholders demands a comprehensive security plan which must align key departments: (1) Cyber Security; (2) HIPAA Privacy and Security; and (3) HTM. Because IT departments understand the IT infrastructure, HIPAA privacy departments understand OCR rules and HTM understands the functionality of the device – repair and maintenance, there must be an understanding of whom manages specific threats to the IT network and the medical device.
Learn the strategies to develop thorough strategies to lessen and alleviate OCR violations should a breach occurs:

  • Incorporate functionality systems which detect cybersecurity events in devices, in a timely manner;
  • Develop strategies to contain medical device intrusion;
  • Contain the impact of a potential cybersecurity incident;
  • Create contracts which lessen the risk of the health delivery organization;
  • Learn strategies to ensure proper management of PHI captured within the medical devices.

FDA Communication Power Tools

The US Food and Drug Administration offers a range of mechanisms to communicate with premarket review staff. The timing of communication and best practices to ensure both parties understand each other's messages is not well understood. Manufacturers regularly under-estimate the time and preparation required for effective communications for premarket applications and postmarket communications. Kwame Ulmer will highlight effective communication with FDA in a comprehensive manner to include the power tools that can be used immediately when seeking clearance, approval and effective compliance remediation.

Medical Device Outsourcing, Supply Chain Management and new Foreign Trade Problems for Import/ Export Business

Global markets create new and costly demands for a device import/export business.

New foreign regulatory requirements, effective quality assurance programs and evolving freight forwarding demands all require well planned in-house regulatory program to avoid expensive surprises and delays. For example, the European Union’s (EU) new Medical Device Regulation (MDR) and cybersecurity programs are hot topics for FDA that should be considered as the impact your products.

Thu, 16 Apr 02:00 PM - 02:30 PM Session
Vendor and Supplier Qualification and Selection.

Vendors and suppliers present new risks that require a systematic evaluation of their suitability for your product. You should establish and verify well defined qualification criteria to have proper management of the risks inherent in any 3rd party involvement. The FDA holds you responsible for what you accept from them and incorporate into your commercial service or product. Quality assurance functions present a core challenge to determine a domestic and foreign 3rd party’s willingness to meet your expectations. Your reliance cannot be based on blind faith. You and a third-party vendor or supplier need a dynamic relationship to avoid any manageable risk associated with your product. Key elements of a third-party quality assurance program and risk assessment practices will be identified.
