PCD Medical Equipment Management (MEM) - 2009 White Paper
Most health care enterprises must manage 10,000's of medical devices representing 1,000's of make/model combinations. Managing these devices runs from simply having a consistent unique identification method, to determining the device's location, operational status, battery level and charging profile, software / hardware configuration (incl. serial numbers), pending upgrades or software updates, etc. The problem is that there are no common standards-based technologies for supporting these device management & maintenance activies. MEM covers use cases related to patient care device management and defines profile(s) to address these integration needs.
