The bill also requires the FDA to share information publicly regarding federal resources for health care professionals, medical device manufacturers, and health systems to identify and address cyber vulnerabilities and access support. Additionally, the bill requires a GAO (Government Accountability Office) report examining medical device cybersecurity vulnerabilities and recommendations for improving federal coordination to support cybersecurity for medical devices.
