When Daniel Shuler joined Phoenix Children’s Hospital (PCH) as CISO in 2016, he knew the hospital would be a tempting target for cyber criminals due to the massive troves of sensitive data it collects to diagnose and treat patients. Over the next three years, Shuler spearheaded a complete overhaul of PCH’s security fabric. First, he decommissioned the legacy AV and engaged BlackBerry Cylance’s ThreatZERO™ consultants to deploy CylancePROTECT® on over 4,000 endpoints. Soon after, CylancePROTECT stopped a ransomware attack that could have disrupted patient care by preventing access to electronic medical record data. Next, he engaged a BlackBerry Cylance Red Team to perform annual penetration testing assignments. Says Shuler, “Our relationship is unique in my experience. BlackBerry Cylance has proven repeatedly that they have our best interests at heart and that they share our commitment to provide the best care possible for children and their families.” Read the case study for the full s
Predictive analytics have been used by different industries for years to solve difficult problems that range from detecting credit card fraud to determining patient risk levels for medical conditions. It combines data mining and machine-learning technologies to create statistical models based on historical data. It then uses these models to predict future events. Extracting the power from the data requires powerful algorithms behind predictive analytics.

Learn how Life Sciences organizations can accelerate Real World Evidence by achieving faster time to insight with a metadata-driven, semantically enriched operational platform.
Real World Evidence (RWE) is today’s big data challenge in Life Sciences. Medical records, registries, consultation reports, insurance claims, pharmacy data, social media, and patient surveys all contain valuable insights that Life Sciences organizations need to ascertain and prove the safety, efficacy, and value of their drugs and medical devices.
Learn how Life Sciences organizations can accelerate RWE with a metadata-driven, semantically enriched operational platform that enables them to:
• Unify, harmonize and ensure governance of information from diverse data sources
• Transform information into evidence that proves product efficacy and safety
• Identify data patterns, connections, and relationships for faster time to insight

Healthcare organizations are a favorite target for determined attackers. Any disruption to critical services provides a strong incentive to pay a ransom and patient medical data is highly lucrative for the information it contains.
Research finds that providers have traditionally under invested in IT security, which further compounds the problem. Read the report to learn:
• Important cyber security risks
• The impact of a data breach to your organization
• Key regulations around the globe

Physicians and their patients, medical policy makers and licensing boards, pharmaceutical companies and pharmacies all must work together to stem the opioid epidemic and achieve the fundamental objectives of reducing addiction and deaths. With so many players and data sources, today’s information is partial, fragmented, and often not actionable. We don’t have the data to understand what’s happening, to adjust policy, and to motivate physicians and patients to change their behaviors.
Better data and analytics can help develop better treatment protocols, both for pain in the first place and for remediation when patients are becoming dependent on the drugs.
Healthcare providers face an urgent, internal battle every day: security and compliance versus productivity and service. For most healthcare organizations, the fight is an easy one: Providing quick, high-quality care wins every single time.
Dr. Scott Boden, Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and Director of the Emory Orthopaedics & Spine Center, has a deep understanding of what it takes to run a successful medical practice that provides optimal patient care in today’s complex health care environment. A lauded physician and researcher–he discovered a gene that triggers human bone growth–Dr.Boden gained this insight while treating thousands of patients each year.
Creating a highly efficient, consistent, and cost-effective way to evaluate and treat patients is, according to Dr. Boden, central to success. He also places a high priority on gathering comprehensive data on patient outcomes, while easing the burden of medical documentation.
As the healthcare industry continues to move forward into an age of big data, optimization, and greater coordination of care through the capabilities of better networking technologies, opportunities have never been greater to use technology to truly improve how healthcare professionals interacts with patients. However, growing dependence on your network for everything from medical records to billing information can also mean that healthcare networks hold greater amounts of data than ever before. This makes them a tempting target for hackers.
