Improving healthcare through Integrating Clinical Environments
Making a Difference
The MD PnP program, established in 2004, has become a recognized leader in improving healthcare through the development and adoption of integrated clinical environments (ICE). We have been working to accelerate the adoption of medical device interoperability by providing interoperability building blocks (use cases, standards, a vendor-neutral lab “test bed” environment, and open-source regulatory science tools) and by changing clinical and market expectations of what can be achieved.
Our specific areas of focus include the application of safety engineering to platform-based integrated clinical environments, regulatory pathway leadership, clinical scenarios elicitation and analysis, demonstration implementations, open platform development, and standards development and standards-driven testing, verification, and validation. MD PnP has taken a multi-faceted approach to identifying and addressing key barriers to achieving safe interoperability, including the development and support of suitable open standards, shared sample contracting language, and the elicitation, collection and modeling of clinical use cases and engineering requirements for the ICE platform-based “ecosystem”.
