Abstract

I am delighted to introduce to IT World readers this issue's guest columnist. Scott Bradley, BSEE, MEM, is a product manager for networking at Dräger Medical. He has a great background and experience that I'm happy we're able to take advantage of. We can learn from his network management, medical device experience, and background in managing security accreditations for PCs and networks for the U.S. Army. In this case, we're talking about security with medical-grade workstations—something we all need to pay attention to. As Scott says, “With the introduction of medical-grade workstations into the information infrastructure, maintaining virus-free systems and networks is a fundamental responsibility for both the vendor and the healthcare facility. Each has mandatory tasks to carry out, essential technology to deploy, and strict policies to enforce. Together, they can maintain virus-free environments that promote the highest levels of patient care.” Thanks, Scott, for a timely, informative, and useful IT World! —Jeff Kabachinski, IT World columnist
