TTC #263 Tackling HealthIT Hazards and Safety Issues

Ronni Solomon, Executive Vice President and General Counsel for the ECRI Institute, a non profit organisation, dedicated to improving healthcare through discovering and educating on best medical procedures, devices, drugs etc. explains how the institute works and why they are considered highly credible, when it comes to their findings. The ECRI Institute and Ronni Solomon are very concerned with HealthIT and its associated safety issues. She gives us examples of hazards they have discovered in medical devices and software, numbering them to over 3.5 million in their 50 years of working on the subject. We couldn’t avoid asking her about the ‘ransomware’ cyber attacks happening right now on US hospitals and how the issue must be handled. She gives an interesting possible solution. Ronni Solomon will be speaking at the eHealth Week organised by HIMSS Europe, coming June in Amsterdam. Interviewed by Vicki Kolovou for Tech Talks Central.
