1. Stronger Encryption: To protect patient data, stronger encryption is necessary for medical devices. This ensures that any data transmitted from one device to another is done so securely and without any risk of a security breach. Encryption also helps protect against malicious actors who may be trying to intercept or access confidential patient information stored on a device.

2. Erasing Data with Remote Wiping: Remote wiping capabilities allow healthcare professionals to erase data stored on a device in case of an emergency or if the device has been stolen or compromised. This prevents sensitive information from being accessed by unauthorized individuals and helps ensure that any compromised medical data remains secure.

3. Two-Factor Authentication (2FA): Two-factor authentication adds an additional layer of protection by requiring two pieces of valid evidence (a personal identification number and password) before allowing access to certain areas of the device or system. 2FA makes it much harder for hackers and other attackers to gain unauthorized access because they need both pieces of information in order to gain entry into a system or network. By using strong authentication tools like 2FA, healthcare providers can help protect patient data from malicious actors looking for vulnerability.



To stay ahead of the curve in medical device technology, it's important to stay up-to-date on the latest trends and advancements. In 2023, we can expect to see more efficient healthcare delivery, increased investment in digital healthcare technologies, more consumer-centric medical devices, and greater emphasis on patient safety.
