Telehealth is a rapidly growing sector within healthcare, as practitioners adopt new technologies such as remote patient monitoring (RPM) and video conferencing to treat patients from the comfort of their homes. While the use of RPM for things like blood pressure and glucose monitoring can help reduce the strain on healthcare facilities, telehealth apps and hardware devices also open up a fresh wave of concerns surrounding the security of patients’ data. In an effort to address these concerns, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is in the process of creating practical guidelines for telehealth vendors and healthcare delivery organizations that are exploring these new technologies.
