Symposium Cum Workshop –

"Safety Connecting to Future Smart Hospital & Healthcare" -

Day 1: Hands-on Technical Demonstrations

Day 2: Governance and International Vision for Future Smart Healthcare


Hong Kong Productivity Council (HKPC) is going to hold a two-day International Symposium cum Pre-symposium Workshop on Cyber Security on Medical and Healthcare System during 30 November 2017 to 1 December 2017 in HKPC Building.

Smart medical devices and applications can link to online networks to make up Internet of Medical Things (IoMT). The growth of IoMT technologies in healthcare has been strikingly driven by a variety of factors such as global elderly population, higher prevalence of diseases like diabetes and obesity, and increasing demand for health and fitness monitoring solutions. Smart IoMT covers broad applications from medical diagnosis, medical treatment, surgery, to monitoring and tracking of patient’s recovery condition. As such, this technology has a great potential to minimize the medical manpower for operating the current clinical management system and effectively increase the quality and productivity of the medical service in Hong Kong.

However, the development of this technology faces challenges brought by the emerging hacking activities. According to the report from TrapX Security, cyber-attacks targeting patient data increased 300% between 2014 and 2016. The vulnerability of IoMT is drawing greater scrutiny from IT professionals because internet-connected devices are proliferating in health care and have been harnessed to launch cyberattacks.

As such, HKPC hopes to synergize the expertise of the Government, IT and Smart Healthcare & MedTech industries to promote public awareness on cyber security and related enabling technologies within medical and healthcare systems. Hence, the captioned two-day International Symposium cum Pre-symposium Workshop seeks to promote the latest technologies, road-maps and solutions to local stakeholders towards mitigating cyber security vulnerabilities in the current healthcare services.
