More dynamic, more digital, and more networked than ever: the medical industry is taking big strides into the future. Once again, MEDICA, the world’s largest event for the medical sector, will take place alongside COMPAMED, the dedicated trade fair for the developers and suppliers of medical components, technologies, and services. The who’s who of this vital and vibrant industry field will meet to discuss medical advancements in electromedicine, laboratory equipment, diagnostic tests, physiotherapy, and orthopedic technologies, fostered by digitalization and interconnectivity.
On Nov. 19th, 2 to 4 pm, the Compamed High-Tech Forum by IVAM will host one of its highlight events, a thought-provoking session about the Digitalization of Medical Equipment, in Hall 8a, booth G40. Introduced by a keynote from Niklas Kuczaty, Head of the VDMA working group on medical technology, the panel will offer crucial insights to accelerate medical device manufacturers’ progress towards a complete digital transformation. Steffen Zimmermann, Head of the VDMA working group on industrial security, will talk about the closely intertwined relationship between industrial security and medical equipment; Dr. Detlef Houdeau, Senior Director Business Development of Infineon Technologies, will explain how to bring medical equipment to the “high” level of the new European Cybersecurity Act; Prof. Dr. Andreas Schaad, Professor of IT Security at the Offenburg University of Applied Sciences, will delve into the current trends and hypes in IT security; Oliver Winzenried, CEO and founder of Wibu-Systems, will analyze how to combine cybersecurity and new business models for medical equipment; and lastly, Dr. Georg Heidenreich, Director Healthcare IT Standards of Siemens Healthineers, will cast a look at what the future of cybersecurity for medical equipment will look like.
