For biomeds, the latest test equipment lightens the load

And in today’s IT health-focused environment, it’s becoming more and more challenging for biomeds to stay on top of all the requirements and regulations.
Just recently, the International Electrotechnical Commission published its IEC 80001 regulations, which address risk management with IT networks and the connection of medical devices. Understanding the new standards will take time and potentially, will require partnerships.

Several hospitals have already begun integrating the IT and CE departments, and some administrators may face resistance from IT and biomed staff, two groups whose skill sets don’t overlap much.

The two departments are still separate at Luebbe’s facility, but they’re “just starting to work more closely together,” he says.

And while biomeds will always be responsible for making sure a hospital’s equipment is in perfect condition to ensure the best patient care, their knowledge base will continuously evolve. In the biomed realm, “the only constant is change,” says Luebbe.
