Siemens Cybersecurity Expert Says Medtech Industry Has 'Perverse Incentive' To Not Disclose Vulnerabilities – Might A New Law Be The Fix?
The fear of losing business by being transparent about cybersecurity vulnerabilities means there's "a perverse incentive in some parts of the market that encourages a lack of disclosure," Siemens' Harrison Wadsworth says. But the US FDA's Suzanne Schwartz believes coordinated vulnerability disclosure legislation could "level the playing field."
Turkey’s health ministry has disclosed that the forthcoming $10bn medical device tender must come with conditions that strengthen the local manufacturing infrastructure. It must also give Turkey “real” technology with IP rights, not merely an assembly activity for parts manufactured abroad. The tender will be ready in some two to three months.
'Where Technology Meets Science': Doctors, Medical Students Take Experimental Medtech For A Spin In Pittsburgh's Center For Surgical Arts
Some big-name device-makers – Medtronic, Stryker, Karl Storz, Siemens and more – are donating expensive capital equipment to the Center for Surgical Arts, a modern teaching lab that boasts 21 bays for training residents and fellows in various types of surgery. The companies are doing this to not only nail down future customers, but to test new devices, as well. The Center also includes a Bose test frame that was used to help clear Alphatec Spine's Solus device with US FDA without a clinical trial. "Those can be multimillion-dollar studies. So, to be able to do that, and to have the FDA feel comfortable with that, is kind of a cool capability," says Dr. Donald Whiting, chair of the Allegheny Health Network Neuroscience Institute.
The Turkish Government postponed a $10bn medical device tender for at least the third time, to January 10. But it is the government's insistence that the giant tender will go on at all, rather than be canceled outright, that has attracted criticism from local companies, who object to some of the tender's conditions.
