The Utilization dashboard provides quick access to statistics
about medical IoT device operations.
When IoT Security detects a device in one of its supported
categories of medical IoT imaging and infusion systems on the network,
it automatically displays a new dashboard in its interface—the Utilization
dashboard. IoT Security gathers utilization statistics and metrics
about the medical IoT devices it is monitoring and displays them
on this dashboard. You can then leverage this data to minimize device
downtime, reduce total cost of ownership (TCO), and increase revenue through
better capital planning. In addition to minimizing downtime and
maintenance, you can also use the gathered data to identify unused
assets (possibly broken or misplaced) and ensure safe and secure
device disposal at the end of the IoT device life cycle.
Make sure the application content version on
your firewalls is 8367-6513 or later; that is, the major version,
which is identified by the first four digits, is 8367 or above (8368,
8369, 8370, and so on), starting from 8367-6513. These versions
include healthcare-specific applications that allow IoT Security
to discover medical equipment and provide utilization data. They
also allow firewall security policy rules to include healthcare-specific
To view the Utilization dashboard, click
The dashboard is organized into two broad sections. At the top
is a set of filters for
sites, medical IoT device categories, and time ranges that control
what appears on the page. Below the filters are information panels that
display various types of information about how medical IoT devices
are being utilized.
In addition to viewing the dashboard in the IoT Security portal,
you can download its data as an Excel spreadsheet. Click the
the right of the top filters, set the filters to include the data
you want to save, and then click
IoT Security creates an Excel file with the details you specified
on multiple tabs and makes it available for download.
