Rising Importance of Hospital Telemedicine and Security

LookDeep has recently published articles on the pivotal role of hospital security in telemedicine systems within the healthcare sector.

At LookDeep, our commitment to security has been fundamental to our mission from day one, and we’ve consistently emphasized its significance through our numerous publications.

With the increasing focus on telemedicine security and related issues, its critical all providers mandate adherence to fundamental security protocols and audits, particularly in the homes of our most critical patients. The COVID-19 pandemic saw accurate predictions about the security challenges posed by hastily assembled telemedicine systems. Today, the spotlight is shifting towards hospital security.

The hope is that necessary action will be taken to address these security concerns before we witness a significant breach via inpatient telemedicine platforms.
