Air Force Medical Operations Agency Chooses tiag® to Combat Medical Device Security Vulnerabilities Throughout Air Force Hospitals and Clinics
RESTON, Va., December 6, 2018 – Supporting a vital mission to ensure optimum health care for service members, tiag® was recently awarded a five-year prime contract supporting Air Force Medical Operations Agency (AFMOA) Clinical Engineering Branch.
Providing cybersecurity, medical device information security support services and patch management for medical devices throughout all Air Force hospitals and clinics, tiag will develop Risk Management Framework (RMF) packages for medical devices with the goal of achieving Authorization to Connect (ATOs) that allow these critical devices to function fully and securely on DoD’s enterprise medical network.
Securing medical devices is extremely challenging due to FDA restrictions and extremely important to ensure the best possible health care for service members. In addition to developing and maintaining standardized medical device patch management processes, tiag will help to inform and facilitate enterprise medical device acquisition — managing device deployments, and developing lifecycle management processes for the medical devices utilized at all Air Force Military Treatment Facilities (MTFs).
Leveraging tiag’s expertise in cybersecurity and medical device RMF, this contract puts tiag at the tip of the spear for medical device cybersecurity, and brings aboard new tiag team talent comprising cybersecurity pros, patch management specialists and RMF analysts.
“We are honored to support AFMOA and during the next five years, tiag will help lead the way with medical device RMF throughout DHA as the medical services consolidate their cyber efforts into DHA,” says tiag Managing Principal and Chief Strategy Officer Umang Modi.
Notably, this is tiag’s second contact supporting AFMOA, and this work facilitates the integration of advanced medical devices into the ongoing health care of service members, leading to better care and outcomes.
