Connecting With Care
Managing Cybersecurity Risks in Connected Medical Devices
TRIMEDX started out 19 years ago as the biomedical
engineering department at St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana. Since then, the organization has grown to
manage 1.1 million clinical assets at 1,800 provider locations across the U.S., supported by a team of 1,100 hospitalbased
technicians. As clinical technology has evolved, the company has evolved in tandem, now working with
clients to manage the complex cybersecurity risks that come with a new generation of connected devices. Planning
and remediation around the risks that come with connected medical equipment can be heavily compromised
if a provider lacks a clear understanding of what assets they own and what software is running on them, so
cybersecurity has become a major area of focus for the company. David Klumpe, TRIMEDX's president of clinical
asset management, discussed this topic with three healthcare executives at the Modern Healthcare Leadership
Symposium on October 12, 2018.
