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 the evaluation and adoption of open standards and technology for integrating medical devices to support clinical solutions for improving patient safety and healthcare efficiency. Under MD PnP program leadership during the past year, the international ICE standard Integrated Clinical Environment Part I was adopted and published by ASTM International as ASTM F2671-2009 progress was made on other interoperability-related standards a 3-day FDA Workshop on Medical Device Interoperability was held, spinning off a working group to define a prototype regulatory submission a second version of the MD FIRE contracting language was developed and is being reviewed our PCA safety demonstration was expanded to a mobile platform to inform future development notable progress was made in collaborations with the VA and with federal agencies, leading to joint projects and initiatives and a large 5-year grant was received from NIHNIBIB.
