Methodist Hospital's winning submission, Redefining Medical Equipment Management and Giving a Solution to Vulnerabilities from New Medical Device Technology, describes its development of a new integrated systems management program that identifies equipment vulnerabilities related to patient safety, information availability, and cybersecurity that result from the introduction of advanced and increasingly complex medical devices in the healthcare setting.

"Our integrated systems management program was developed by a team who was committed to ensuring patient safety and delivering better healthcare."
