Secure and Safe Medical Device Interoperability in Acute Care

8:30am - 9:30am Wednesday, March 11
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W308A

Description

The interoperability capabilities of today’s acute care medical devices do not address the current and future needs of clinicians and hospital management. We present a secure and safe architecture based on international standards for medical device interoperability in acute and perioperative care environments that enables the development of vendor-independent Medical Apps. The architecture is based on the combination of IHE PCD profiles with the IEEE 11073 Service oriented Device Connectivity (SDC) standards family for communication ‘from the medical device’s interface’. We provide detailed insight into the interoperability challenges for a silent ICU, as well as an interoperable setup for surgical interventions. We also describe how the envisioned conformance scheme would allow a Hospital to select those medical devices that contribute best to the clinical needs of its staff.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe Medical Device Interoperability use case including Silent ICU and interoperable surgical interventions
  • Describe IHE PCD & IEEE 11073 SDC standards family
  • Explain how IHE PCD & IEEE 11073 SDC standards family is used to develop vendor-independent Medical Apps that solve the challenges for the Medical Device Interoperability use cases
  • Identify the regulatory challenges for Medical Device Interoperability
  • Identify the benefits for the Hospital and why they should buy interoperable Medical Devices that conform with international standards
