Committed to proactively addressing the security concerns of our customers

To guide our efforts, we have created a global policy to address the evolving nature of security in medical technology, including product feature requirements, security threat assessment and tracking, and compliance with local government standards.

Security status

Philips Product Security Status documents have product-specific vulnerability updates and security-related information such as supported anti-virus software, OS security features, and remote service.
 

Each product has its own table and the products are separated by modality, i.e. Informatics, Ultrasound, Magnetic Resonance, etc. The Status Documents list known software vulnerabilities, the current status, and Recommended Customer Action.
 

Revised tables are posted regularly with the latest available information.

Manufacturer Disclosure Statement for Medical Device Security


As part of our commitment to product security and customer service, Philips Healthcare supplies our customers with information to help assess and address the vulnerabilities and risks associated with products that maintain or transmit ePHI.

 

Specifically, Philips Healthcare is using the Manufacturer Disclosure Statement for Medical Device Security (MDS²) to provide security information about its products.

 

The MDS² contains product specific security information such as:

 

  • Maintaining, storing, and transmitting ePHI
  • Data back-up and removable media capabilities
  • Installing security patches and anti-virus software
  • Remote service access
  • Audit logs of ePHI access including: Viewing; creating, modifying, and deleting records; importing/exporting

 

The MDS², a universal reporting form which allows Philips Healthcare to supply its customers with model-specific information, is endorsed by the American College of Clinical Engineering (ACCE), ECRI (formerly the Emergency Care Research Institute), the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), and the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS).

 

The form also contains security practice recommendations and explanatory notes from the manufacturer as well as detailed.

Customers must register for access.    

 

To register, send an e-mail to Incenter@philips.com providing the following information:
