Medical Device Connectivity - Leveraging current approaches, developing new capabilities
Saturday August 10th Melbourne
Medical device connectivity is a key component of health informatics, biomedical engineering and health information systems management. The role of medical devices is rapidly progressing from patient physiological monitoring and care delivery via drug and fluid delivery systems to include specialist anaesthesia, operating theatre, intensive care and emergency department systems. “Devices” increasingly include health Software as a Medical Device (SAMD) and patient-connected systems leveraging AI/machine learning powered technologies. Alongside this has been the widespread adoption of specialist and general EMR (electronic medical records) systems. These systems no longer can operate as independent entities glued together by clinicians transferring and interpreting data. This workshop explores Service-oriented Device Connectivity (SDC), an emerging standard for integrating devices from the device interface to connected point-of-care systems to remote applications including EHRs. Workshop Facilitator: Todd Cooper is a US-based biomedical engineer and one of the pioneers of standards-based medical device interoperability. He is a member of the FHIR Foundation, a board member of IHE and co-founder of IHE Patient Care Devices working group.
Who should attend • Those involved in the development, integration & use of connected medical technology for hospitals and acute care environments • Clinical technologists / biomedical engineers (“users”) & system implementers / integrators/clinicians • Medical technology developers & vendors (especially for acute care environments) • Regulatory & governmental agencies & public policy makers • Enterprise IT system developers and integrators of device-based content and services • Researchers & Medical Device Informatics SMEs
