Testimonial

“The MD PnP team has been a terrific partner for Defibrio as we work to build the world’s first personal AED powered by a smartphone. We chose to work with the MD PnP team based on their stellar reputation, first class facilities and the wide variety of expertise we could call upon for help. They are a critical part of our extended team, and we look forward to continuing a strong partnership with MD PnP into the future.” – Arne Bergby,  Defibrio CEO

The Medical Device Plug-and-Play Interoperability & Cybersecurity (MD PnP) Program was founded in 2004 with the mission of improving patient care by leading the development and adoption of safe, secure, and effective digital health and interoperability solutions. Since then, the MD PnP Program has been recognized internationally as a leader continuously pushing the frontier of medical device interoperability, cybersecurity, and informatics research and innovation. Our team of subject matter experts in clinical, computer science, and bioengineering are dedicated to solving complex socio-technical problems that impede digital healthcare innovations.

Working with our sponsors and partners in both public and private sectors, we have established a holistic sandbox environment with a wide range of medical devices and equipment, a sophisticated yet highly configurable network infrastructure, and a rich repository of tools and techniques. This sandbox environment creates vendor-neutral labs for prototyping, design optimization, and assessment of medical devices, digital health solutions, and health IT technologies in simulated care settings.

The MD PnP Program has collaborated with government agencies, hospitals, and medical device companies for pre-clinical/pre-deployment testing and assessment of medical devices, digital health solutions, and hospital IT.  We are also a service provider to MGB for pre-procurement medical device assessment. In addition, our sandbox environment is ideal for startups and other companies to rapidly prototype and test novel technologies in close-to-reality deployment settings, as we have demonstrated in projects in support of pressing national needs, such as Ebola Virus Disease and the COVID-19 pandemic.  

We welcome collaborators and customers to take advantage of our sandbox environment and our world-class expertise to expedite research, development, and verification of innovative medical technologies.
