MD FIRE: Medical Device "Free Interoperability Requirements for the Enterprise"
Initially released on October 16, 2008, the MD FIRE document was drafted by the MD PnP Program's Interoperability Contracting Requirements Working Group, with convened experts from Massachusetts General Hospital, Partners HealthCare, Kaiser Permanente, Johns Hopkins Medicine, and CIMIT. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) joined as a signatory in 2012.
The MD FIRE document contains background and rationale for medical device interoperability to improve patient care, and sample RFI and RFP terms. MD FIRE may be shared under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike license.
We are updating MD FIRE to include cybersecurity requirements and welcome proposed changes and additions to the document. Please send your questions and edits to Drayton Freeman, MD PnP Program Assistant.
