The Cyber Risks of "Networked Medical Devices":  Most medical devices now capture, manipulate, and store data, but many also transmit it to other devices, EMRs, or directly to physicians, labs, clinics, or other providers.  These are great advances in science and medicine, but they also bring sometimes unanticipated risks.  One of these risks is the vulnerability of the data to hacking, which could include not only theft of the data, but revisions to it as well.

The OIG has included cybersecurity of networked medical devices on its 2016 Work Plan, which shows how important this issue is.
