Medcrypt, a California-based startup that uses APIs to help medical device companies secure themselves against hackers and security breaches, won the HIMSS Venture Connect startup contest held during the conference.

The company offers a suite of APIs that medical device software makers can call to incorporate various security features such as data encryption and cryptographic signing to validate all instructions sent to a device. The APIs also connect devices to the MedCrypt Node, which manages public keys and user permissions, as well as monitoring the device for potential breaches.

Other startups were competing for the award, including artificial pancreas maker admetsys, NICU feeding management company Keriton, algorithm-driven CRM SymphonyRM, healthcare texting startup WELL and Wellpepper which offers customized digital treatment plans.
