Abstract

As medical devices become increasingly part of the information technology (IT) network, for either information exchange or basic functionality, a variety of network reliability, safety, and management issues are continuing to emerge. It is therefore logical that risk management be applied to the medical device IT network in a manner similar to its application to other aspects of the clinical enterprise. IEC 80001-Application of Risk Management for IT Networks Incorporating Medical Devices-provides a basic framework for addressing this task. The methods of IEC 80001, if not the standard itself, can be expected to become recognized as a necessary and perhaps mandated ongoing procedure.
