1 Medical Device Integration
Steve Merritt Infrastructure Engineer Baystate Health

2 Why Are We Here? Background Barriers to adoption
Momentum moving us forward How IHE is breaking down these barriers Lets get to work! Panel discussion

3 Key Benefits of Point of Care Medical Device Interoperability
More accurate data (10 to 20% errors introduced with data transcription) Improved patient safety and care outcomes Improved discharge decisions Improved Case Management, Infection Prevention and QA More “real time” data available to MD, clinicians and care managers More clinically sound diagnosis and orders Earlier initiative of appropriate interventions and therapies Prevention of undetected patient deterioration (“failure to rescue”) More “proactive” patient management (LOS,  reimbursement) Better outcomes Increased MD productivity and satisfaction Increased Nursing productivity and satisfaction 1 to 1.5 hrs day savings per RN or CAN Outcomes data warehousing

4 Interoperability: A Brief History of Time
Pre 1990’s – analog outputs (e.g. 0-3V) 1990’s DICOM: Imaging devices HL7: Healthcare informatics, ADT, orders, results ISO/IEEE 11073: Medical devices 2000’s IHE HITSP Continua ASTM F29

5 Standards Smorgasbord
IEEE 11073, DICOM, HL7, IHE, Continua, HITSP, , ASTM F29, IEEE , 802.3, Zigbee, Bluetooth, WMTS, USB, RS-232, ICD, LOINC, SNOMED, UCUM

6 Barriers: Market Forces
Healthcare organization financial priorities Where is the ROI for medical device interoperability? Each solution must be justified financially Reimbursement drivers Are you willing to pay more for standards? Would anyone buy an ultrasound without “DICOM” Vendors marketing one-size-fits-all Do they really make financial sense? Don’t listen to these marketing or sales guys Talk to people who have actually implemented “Sure, we can interface these widgets to your EMR”

7 Safely, Effectively Rigorous validation, verification, and testing of medical devices is required This slows development to market timelines We’re creating complex systems of systems requiring analysis

8 Complex Problems Most healthcare organizations do not have the staff to understand requirements of medical device interoperability Sure it “interfaces” does to your EMR but what does that mean? We need to simplify the integration requirements Vendor salespeople wouldn’t be able to blow as much smoke Imaging devices as an example

9 Cultural Clinical Engineering and Information Systems have traditionally worked in silo’s Clinical Systems Engineer A Hybrid employee Trend is partnering CE with IT Neither one can do this alone AAMI-ACCE-HIMSS CE-IT Community

10 What Is Driving Us Today?
Trend to organizations and government initiatives to move this forward. These are not Standards Delivery Organizations (SDO’s) HITSP (Healthcare Information Technology Standards Panel) Wide focus on harmonizing and integrating standards across healthcare Continua Focus on Personal Health Devices IHE Patient Care Devices Domain Where at least one actor is a regulated point-of-care medical device

11 IHE PCD: Simplify Specs!

12 PCD Overview Sponsored by HIMSS and ACCE
The IHE Patient Care Device Domain, working with regional and national deployment committees, will apply the proven, Use Case driven IHE processes to: Deliver the technical framework for the IHE-PCD; Test conformance with published IHE-PCD profiles using test plans, tools and scripts at Connectathons; and Demonstrate marketable solutions at public trade shows. IHE-PCD profiles: Improve patient safety and clinical efficacy, Reduce healthcare delivery cost by improving efficiency, reliability, and operational flexibility for healthcare providers, Enable innovative patient care capabilities, and Expand the international marketplace for patient care device vendors.

13 PCD Status [ACM] Alarm Communication Management enables the remote communication of point-of-care medical device alarm conditions ensuring the right alarm with the right priority to the right individuals with the right content (e.g., evidentiary data). [DEC] Device Enterprise Communication supports publication of information acquired from point-of-care medical devices to applications such as clinical information systems and electronic health record systems, using a consistent messaging format and device semantic content. [PIV] Point-of-care Infusion Verification supports communication of a 5-Rights validated medication delivery / infusion order from a BCMA system to an infusion pump or pump management system, thus "closing the loop.“ DPI, MEM, WCM, IDCO

19 Leveraging IHE for purchasing
How do you get IHE Integration Profiles? Specify IHE capabilities as requirements State in the RFP which IHE Actors and Integration Profiles you want. What do IHE Integration Profiles cost? Nothing in most cases Any cost should be a fraction of the overall

20 The business case for implementing IHE Profiles
Enables you to efficiently manage the array of integrated information systems necessary to support effective healthcare The alternative Building site-specific interfaces More expensive Requires maintaining these custom interfaces for the life of the system involved. Integration via IHE is less costly at the start and makes future acquisitions easier to plan and execute IHE Profiles give clear definitions of how the pieces fit together IHE Profiles come with initial unit testing done

21 What Can You Do? Plan, Evaluate, Purchase IHE Conforming Devices
In continuing discussions with vendors – at all levels Push IHE Interoperability Refer to lower deployment, maintenance costs Encourage vendors’ active IHE participation Lower development, installation, support costs Refer to profiles Leverage public and objective commitments In RFPs Refer to profiles, Conformance Statements Use Conformance Statements to “nail down” vendor’s representations Adopt very specific language Don’t forget to look ahead – what is being developed, what is the upgrade path? 21

22 Sample language “The device shall support the IHE Device Enterprise Communication (DEC) Integration Profile as the Device Observation Reporter (DOR) Actor.” “The pump shall support the IHE Point-of-Care Infusion Verification (PIV) Integration Profile as the Infusion Order Consumer (IOC) Actor.” “The device shall support the IHE Alarm Communication Management (ACM) Integration Profile as the Alarm Reporter (AR) Actor.”
