Abstract : This BAA provided core program support to develop key capabilities of the Medical Device Plug-and-Play (MD PnP) Interoperability Program to lead the evaluation and adoption of open standards and technology for networking medical devices to support clinical solutions for improved patient safety and healthcare efficiency. Towards these goals, a medical device interoperability lab was created at CIMIT in Cambridge, MA, as a vendor-neutral, shared collaborative resource; clinical use cases demonstrating the capability of medical device interoperability to improve patient safety were developed and exhibited at major national conferences; Part I of a multi-part international standard (ICE) describing the functional architecture and risk mitigation strategies for networked patient-centric interoperable medical devices was written and is being published by ASTM International; a conference on Improving Patient Safety through Medical Device Interoperability & High Confidence Software was held, with a subsequent workshop; a working group of MD PnP collaborators was convened.
