In my past, I have worked with a number of physiological acquisition devices, but was proud to be a part of the team that created the worlds first portable DICOM compatible ECG machine. Not only was it wifi enabled, it had a sophisticated radio modem module that provided enterprise-level security in the form of (light) Extensible Authorization Protocol, or (L)EAP. At the time, all of the competitive ECG machines were using WEP, a simplistic wireless security methodology intended for home use.

As part of my marketing launch, I wrote a white paper on wireless technologies for medical devices as an objective piece to educate hospital administration on the concept of IT Governance and making sure to purchase devices that would co-exist on the hospital wireless backbone.
