1 Patient Care Device Interoperability Standards IHE-PCDPatient Care Device Interoperability Standards
2 State of open standards-based medical device connectivity? Nonexistent!Proprietary Interfaces + Partnerships =Security for vendorsLimitations & expense for providers & patientsA business issue – not a lack of technology
3 What has blocked implementation of medical device interoperability? Incomplete standards … but no longer the case!Uncoordinated & inconsistent demand from providers and other user stakeholdersUndefined stakeholder value propositionsResources – esp. of standardization effortsInfrastructure is a hard sell (who benefits?!)A business issue – not a lack of technology
