Healthcare Delivery Organizations (HDOs) are leveraging a combination of telehealth capabilities, such as remote patient monitoring (RPM) and videoconferencing, to treat patients in their homes. These modalities are used to treat numerous conditions, such as patients battling chronic illness or requiring postoperative monitoring.
As use of these capabilities continues to grow, it is important to ensure that the infrastructure supporting them can maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of patient data, and to ensure the safety of patients. It is also important to ensure the privacy of patient data by considering the privacy engineering objectives of predictability, manageability, and disassociability of data.
The goal of this project is to provide a practical solution for securing the telehealth RPM ecosystem. NIST encourage technology providers to submit a Letter of Interest should they have a commercially available product suited for the build.
