Title Medical Device Plug-and-Play Interoperability Standards and Technology Leadership.
Publication Date Oct 2012
Media Count 22p
Personal Author J. M. Goldman S. F. Whitehead
Abstract This BAA is providing core program support to develop key capabilities of the Medical Device Plug-and-Play (MD PnP) Interoperability Program to lead medical device interoperability to support clinical solutions for improving patient safety and healthcare efficiency. Under MD PnP program leadership during the past year, a multi-institutional/industry working group submitted to FDA a Pre-IDE regulatory submission of a safe integrated medical device system; an updated version of the MD FIRE procurement language was signed by the VA and posted on our public website; the Clinical Landscape & Needs subgroup of the newly formed and FDA-sponsored Medical Device Interoperability Coordinating Council collected and shared clinical scenarios; we contributed materially to UL s proposed standard for certifiable safety of medical device interfaces; we collaborated with the VA, NIST, NSF, ONC, and others, including work with AAMI on standards and smart alarms initiatives.
