The Medical Device Innovation, Safety and Security Consortium has launched the first of its many device security testing labs planned for 2017 as part of its new World Health Information Security Testing Lab concept.
The first WHISTL lab has begun operations at the Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Hospital in Indianapolis, said Dale Nordenberg, executive director of MDISS, a public health physician, medical epidemiologist and medical informatics expert.
The second WHISTL lab is slated to open later this month at the University of Tampere in Finland. About a dozen more sites will follow by the end of the year, said Nordenberg. Those are planned for New York, Indiana, Tennessee, California as well as in the UK, Israel, and Singapore.
