The intersection of technology and medicine has never been more important, and the theme of the Georgia Bio Innovation Summit held October 8, 2019, in Atlanta reflects that focus: “Empowering the Patient”. Leadership from United Technology Group will be exhibiting at this exciting event, where more than 500 senior executives, scientists and public policy officials in the MedTech and bioscience world will be coming together. As part of the combined United Technology Group and Coretelligent presence at the event, Christopher Messer, CTO of Coretelligent, will be moderating a panel discussion entitled “Cybersecurity: The Complexities Facing Your Life Science Business”, a high-profile topic for this industry. With sessions covering everything from the future of connected healthcare to policy issues facing the life sciences, the annual event is celebrating the advances that technology brings to healthcare.
The Rise of MedTech
There are no finite definitions of what is included in the broad term “MedTech”, but it encompasses the intersection of digital and personal health. Everything from electronic health records (EHR) to connected devices and cybersecurity are on the agenda for discussion, with technology companies like United Technology Group (UTG) helping lead conversations throughout the event. The technology used in the life science industry continues to evolve at an extraordinary rate, with security and privacy issues high on agendas for business and technology professionals. “We look at the annual Georgia Bio Innovation Summit as an opportunity to connect directly with those on the front lines of connected healthcare, understanding their needs and the challenges on the road ahead,” notes Brian Miller, Senior Vice President of Business Development, Southern Region.
Patient-Centered Technical Innovation
The growth of machine learning and artificial intelligence mean that healthcare organizations have access to richer data sources than ever before, but this information can be extremely tempting to cybercriminals. The focus on cybersecurity and data privacy is nothing new for biotech and pharmaceutical firms, but these highly-regulated industries must be increasingly cautious with their protected health data. Organizations are looking to technology leaders to help provide platforms for data security and compliance that still allow patients access to their personal information and portable healthcare records.
As a part of Coretelligent, United Technology Group now has access to a wider breadth of knowledge in the life sciences sector. Coretelligent has extensive experience working with rigid regulatory standards, providing technology solutions for pharmaceutical, diagnostics and other life science companies that help support compliance through all stages of the business lifecycle.
