November 30, 2018 | Aging Services Risk, Quality, & Safety Guidance
The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) has proposed a project establishing a reference architecture to address security and privacy risks involved in remote patient monitoring systems deployed in patients' homes. The center, which is part of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (U.S. Department of Commerce), is seeking feedback from the public by December 21, 2018. Remote patient monitoring systems installed in the home are useful for many types of patients, such as those with chronic illnesses or those who require postoperative monitoring, according to the center's website.
