Technological advances in the realm of health care continue to improve clinical efficacy and patient outcomes each and every day. Patients can schedule appointments to see their doctors the same day. Health providers are able to review patient records for around-the-clock care. Integrated, simplified billing processes reduce human error and strive to lower medical costs.
Nonetheless, with this evolution lies an increased risk of cyber attacks and attempts to exploit security vulnerabilities. As a world leader in patient care, UCLA Health is at the front lines, combating these issues and has updated its policy on encryption of mobile devices and removable media used for University business to further safeguard information security.
In response to this updated policy, UCLA Health Procurement & Strategic Sourcing has created new EMPAC (hospital formulary) item numbers to be used when departments order encrypted USB flash (thumb) drives for hospital use. These flash drives, the Kingston Data Traveler 4000 G2, 4GB and the Kingston Data Traveler 4000 G2, 8GB, have both been approved by ISS and can be ordered through CDW-G (Vendor Number 107627952). To download the EMPAC ADD spreadsheet and view the hospital item numbers that should be used when entering requisitions, please click here.
