The whole concern/issue I have with not having a well planned and resourced strategy is that there will be potentially dangerous divergence of standards/control.
Just because we can connect a device or Integrate its data, it doesn't necessarily mean we should.
There are a good few articles out there with respect to hacking of networks (including medical equipment). People hacking or modifying data, then there's the whole minefield of patient confidentiality.
IT would have to take care of all of the above under the guidance of iso 80001-1
At this moment, I'm feeling that although the potential is out there, the risks of going it alone as an organisation without payment/sign off by the OEM would be a dangerous game.
