Abstract:

Partial support was requested from TATRC, with joint funding from NSF, for a joint workshop to bring together the synergistic efforts and communities of the High Confidence Medical Devices, Software, and Systems HCMDSS program and the Medical Device Plug-and-Play MD PnP Interoperability program to provide a forum to exchange and learn from new research and development results by these groups. The three-day workshop drew 145 participants from academia, industry, government, and health care, including researchers, developers, regulators, users, and manufacturers of medical devices, as well as interested government agencies. The opening keynote address was given by Dr. Robert Kolodner, the National Coordinator for Health IT, and the program included refereed papers, panels on the Clinical Need and on Government Perspectives on Interoperability, a session of posters and scientific demonstrations in the MD PnP Lab, and breakout sessions on selected topics. The workshop proceedings were published by the IEEE Computer Society. Results included broadened perspectives and an expanded network of collaborators and stakeholders for both programs, presentations of meeting results in multiple venues, and new collaborations, as well as streaming video of all talks on the web.
