The Patient Care Device Domain of Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise Invites You to Learn More

The IHE PCD provided demonstrations of interoperable messages at the 2013 AAMI meeting. This Wiki page summarizes the demonstration and provides information and links to make additional information readily available.

The Demonstrations

The PCD Domain demonstrated the benefits of currently available standards-based messaging for:

• Physiologic and certain device operational data
• Alarms, alerts, events and location as desired to clinicians or to electronic records (e.g., EMRs, CISs).
• Infusion pump medication delivery for improved safety (support of the five rights medication administration)
• Implantable cardiac device data (not demonstrated)

The following were demonstrated to showcase efforts that are just beginning:

• Device condition and status messages to CMMS – enabling improved device management, increased safety, cost savings, regulatory compliance and increasing user satisfaction
E.g., device failure, self-test results, battery condition, operational status, versions, patches
• Location Services – messages from RTLS systems to CMMS
E.g., locating the device with a failure alert, providing users with location in biomed and facilitating communication between biomed and user
• Combined CMMS/LS data – enable proactive response to failure or marginal performance (potentially before the user is aware), to improve management of capital equipment and better purchasing/rental decisions relying upon increased accuracy of utilization data

Other work is underway. This includes messages that don't rise to the level of alarms; i.e., they are of interest but don't require immediate intervention. To learn more about messaging alerts and events and other work in process please contact the PCD: pcd@accenet.org.
