This award provides 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 2014-2015, we have played a leadership role working on interoperability standards with ASTM, AAMI, ISO, and the AAMIUL2800 Joint Committee developing standards for certifiable safety of medical device interfaces, and have developed core content for an ICE Data Logger draft standard to be submitted to a standards organization. We organized and disseminated clinical and system requirements that will facilitate adoption by device manufacturers, thereby providing products for procurement by the DoD and others. We led the submission to the FDA of a supplement to the pre-IDE for interoperable medical devices published on our web site, and subsequent responses to FDA requests.
