Deloitte Risk and Financial Advisory is pleased to, once again, be a sponsor of the AHIA annual conference. We’ll be represented by Deloitte's healthcare industry-focused professionals who provide a broad range of services to providers, hospital systems, medical clinics, research institutions, laboratories, and health service agencies. Connect with us at the conference (Booth 27) and explore how we're helping healthcare internal audit functions not only deliver assurance more efficiently, but also advise stakeholders and anticipate risk.

Information about our speaking engagements:

Top 10 Emerging Healthcare Audit Issues
August 27, 1:10–2:00 p.m.
Glenn Wilson, senior manager, Deloitte & Touche LLP

Where do you focus your next audit? Competing risks, and priorities, drive audit plans but many of these plans feature repetitive audits that may not address emerging risks. Join us to learn about the next risk you should be considering.
Auditing a Medical Device Security Program
August 28, 3:30–5:10 p.m.
Terry Corcoran, senior manager, Nick Sikorski, manager, and Penelope Chuah, senior consultant, Deloitte & Touche LLP
Mark Manning, Division Chair of Healthcare Technology Management Enterprise, Mayo Clinic

New device security guidance and forms of device security protection have evolved, encouraging existing and future security practices to undergo due diligence and review. One solution to this complex issue and process for addressing an organization’s medical device security is through a formal Medical Device Security Program (MDSP) Audit. Conducting an MDSP Audit can help manage and monitor medical device security risk, create efficiency and consistency in the mitigation of security events and incidents, and improve collaboration and communication between device vendors and healthcare providers to create a sustained framework for mitigating current security threats and provide continuous improvement. This framework can help manufacturers and providers adapt to the rapidly changing security landscape and better protect patient safety and information.

This session will focus on the MDSP security audit components and the auditing practices related to designing, developing, implementing, and sustaining a mature medical device security program.
Internal Audit’s Role in Driving IT Strategy
August 29, 10:00 a.m.–10:50 a.m.
Geoffrey Ho, manager, Deloitte & Touche LLP

To keep up with the increasingly complex and dynamic environment, organizations have begun transforming their IT operations through IT outsourcing, cloud strategies, business partnering models, and other strategies. Similarly, Internal Audit’s role has also evolved from being purely audit/compliance driven to being business enhancing and value adding. In this session, we will explore the several ways in which Internal Audit can utilize its unique position to help drive enhancements and bring value towards the development of an effective IT strategy.
