Hill-Rom announce DoD grant of conditional authority to operate to products
Hill-Rom announced the U.S. Department of Defense, or DoD, has granted conditional authority to operate, or ATO-C, to the company's Welch Allyn Connex monitoring systems, Connex vital signs connectivity solutions and the ELI 380 resting electrocardiograph, or ECG, device. The DoD authorization allows these Hill-Rom vital signs monitoring systems and resting ECG devices to be connected to DoD healthcare system networks in the U.S. and internationally. Earning this distinction requires that each device meet or exceed the DoD's cybersecurity prevention thresholds and incorporates measures to help minimize the risk of a cyber-attack, a requirement of the DoD's risk management framework.
