One Medical, a membership-based primary care practice, was faced with the challenge of securing customer data in line with their cloud-first strategy. The healthcare industry is particularly vulnerable to identity theft, and organizations like One Medical have to manage a multitude of electronic medical records. The company takes the security and confidentiality of their customers’ Personally Identifiable Information (PII) seriously, adhering to industry best practices in software development, testing, and internal and external security practices. However, they needed a security solution that could scale with their cloud-first strategy, improve their overall security posture, and remain compliant with HIPAA. They also faced issues with false positives in their environment, which could potentially block doctors from performing critical functions such as submitting prescriptions. Other solutions they evaluated were difficult to deploy into their cloud-first technology stack and caused false positives.
About The Customer
One Medical is a membership-based primary care practice that aims to make quality care more affordable, accessible, and enjoyable for all. They achieve this through a blend of human-centered design, technology, and an exceptional team. One Medical is committed to protecting customer data, especially in an industry that is susceptible to identity theft. They follow industry best practices in software development and testing, as well as internal and external security practices. They also have a cloud-first strategy and needed a security solution that could scale with this strategy, improve their overall security posture, and remain compliant with HIPAA.
One Medical’s security and engineering teams chose Fastly over competitors due to greater confidence in their security capabilities. The solution was easily deployed into their cloud-first technology stack, gaining the approval of all stakeholders. Mike Katz, Senior Security Engineer at One Medical, emphasized the importance of a tool that can be easily deployed for the development team. Fastly was the only solution that met their requirements. One Medical also used Fastly analytics and data to build a more strategic security program. This increased awareness of the risks their application was under, helping them build a more effective business case to add more security headcount and plan for the year ahead. Shortly after deploying Fastly’s Next-Gen WAF, they were able to immediately shut down a malicious IP attempting to brute force logins to their application. Instead of relying on logs to surface events after the fact, they used the Next-Gen WAF to block and alert in real-time.

Hospital Inventory Management
The hospital supply chain team is responsible for ensuring that the right medical supplies are readily available to clinicians when and where needed, and to do so in the most efficient manner possible. However, many of the systems and processes in use at the cancer center for supply chain management were not best suited to support these goals. Barcoding technology, a commonly used method for inventory management of medical supplies, is labor intensive, time consuming, does not provide real-time visibility into inventory levels and can be prone to error. Consequently, the lack of accurate and real-time visibility into inventory levels across multiple supply rooms in multiple hospital facilities creates additional inefficiency in the system causing over-ordering, hoarding, and wasted supplies. Other sources of waste and cost were also identified as candidates for improvement. Existing systems and processes did not provide adequate security for high-cost inventory within the hospital, which was another driver of cost. A lack of visibility into expiration dates for supplies resulted in supplies being wasted due to past expiry dates. Storage of supplies was also a key consideration given the location of the cancer center’s facilities in a dense urban setting, where space is always at a premium. In order to address the challenges outlined above, the hospital sought a solution that would provide real-time inventory information with high levels of accuracy, reduce the level of manual effort required and enable data driven decision making to ensure that the right supplies were readily available to clinicians in the right location at the right time.

Driving Digital Transformations for Vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices
Diagnostic devices play a vital role in helping to improve healthcare delivery. In fact, an estimated 60 percent of the world’s medical decisions are made with support from in vitrodiagnostics (IVD) solutions, such as those provided by Roche Diagnostics, an industry leader. As the demand for medical diagnostic services grows rapidly in hospitals and clinics across China, so does the market for IVD solutions. In addition, the typically high cost of these diagnostic devices means that comprehensive post-sales services are needed. Wanteed to improve three portions of thr IVD:1. Remotely monitor and manage IVD devices as fixed assets.2. Optimizing device availability with predictive maintenance.3. Recommending the best IVD solution for a customer’s needs.

Harnessing real-time data to give a holistic picture of patient health
Every day, vast quantities of data are collected about patients as they pass through health service organizations—from operational data such as treatment history and medications to physiological data captured by medical devices. The insights hidden within this treasure trove of data can be used to support more personalized treatments, more accurate diagnosis and more advanced preparative care. But since the information is generated faster than most organizations can consume it, unlocking the power of this big data can be a struggle. This type of predictive approach not only improves patient care—it also helps to reduce costs, because in the healthcare industry, prevention is almost always more cost-effective than treatment. However, collecting, analyzing and presenting these data-streams in a way that clinicians can easily understand can pose a significant technical challenge.
