Cyber security in hospitals: securely connected

Dear Sir or Madam,

One click, all gone. Did you know that just one wrong act is enough to give cybercriminals access to your data? This is also true in hospitals, which offer ever better patient care thanks to digitization and networks. But it's also making them an increasingly popular target for hacker attacks that can hit medical devices, networks and patient records. In our Topic of the Month you can read more about cyberattacks and possible protection measures.

I wish you a relaxed rest of the week,

Katja Laska

Digitalization and networking are supposed to serve the health care system well: In times of staff shortages and demographic change, they are able to support the exchange of patient data and the management of chronic diseases as well as to improve the workflow. But it is still often ignored that both individual devices and complete networks can become lucrative targets for cybercrimes like data theft.

Computational system: Algorithms for cancer treatments

While network algorithms are usually associated with finding friends on social media, researchers at the University of Sussex have shown how they could also be used improve the effectiveness of cancer treatment, by predicting the interactions between genes.

Imaging: System helps to remove tiny ovarian tumors

Ovarian cancer is usually diagnosed only after it has reached an advanced stage, with many tumors spread throughout the abdomen. Most patients undergo surgery to remove as many of these tumors as possible, but because some are so small and widespread, it is difficult to eradicate all of them.

Temperature-triggered devices for gastrointestinal therapies

Gastrointestinal devices such as stents, endoscopic tubes, balloons and drug delivery systems can help clinicians treat patients with a range of conditions. But currently available methods for triggering where and when drugs are released or when a device is triggered to disassemble or change shape are often slow, which can restrict the utility of such tools.
