Abstract:

MHS has fully embraced digital imaging technologies. PACS allow for the archiving and management of these images across different MTFs. It has become increasingly difficult to cope with image management requirements and challenges associated with managing network security. Two workshops were organized around each of these topics with the intent of defining the issues and determining potential solutions. The Open Source Universal PACS Archive workshop focused on current challenges of and open source solutions to the management of images and other clinical information in multi-center settings. The Network Security for Medical Devices and Systems workshop assessed emergent issues and operational impacts related to the imposition of non-medical Information Assurance and network security processes to the healthcare delivery domain. The following three recommendations are the output of the conference 1 establish a medical Community of Interest COI, 2 protect the medical COI and 3 establish guidance for the medical device industry.
