Abstract

There is, in healthcare as in other sectors, a strong convergence between information technology and automation/data capture technologies. In healthcare, this means that clinical engineering and information technology professionals are facing new challenges in terms of governance and security of all the “gray areas,” such as SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) systems and Medical Devices Data Systems. A reflection on the organization models, the training and certification paths, and the evolution of the current professional profiles is a necessity, both in healthcare and in all the other contexts where traditional information technology systems and complex automation/data capture technology are present.
