The Medical Device "Plug-and-Play" (MD PnP) Interoperability Program is promoting innovation in patient safety and clinical care by leading the adoption of secure patient-centric integration of medical devices and IT systems in clinical environments.
In addition to publicly accessible content on this website, other program artifacts are located here:
MD PnP SourceForge public project contains open source code in collaboration with Open Health Tools, and has been established to share code and documentation developed by the Medical Device Plug-and-Play program and its collaborators with the broader community. The creation of the project creates an opportunity for others to provide feedback and leverage artifacts produced by the program. In addition to code and documentation the MD PnP program maintains a continuous integration build of some of its demonstration software that is available for download and can be run on any Windows, Linux, or Macintosh computer. The program also shares physiological data collected from devices in its interoperability lab with the community via SourceForge.
Available artifacts include implementations of various protocols used to connect with medical devices in the lab as well as speculative implementations of user interfaces, messaging infrastructure, and data models built in advance of a prototype implementation of the standard for the Integrated Clinical Environment (ASTM F2761-2009). Collaborators are also using the site to communicate with one another regarding current work. For example, the Device Model Working Group has shared much of its current work on data models on the site. Related work, such as substantial parts of the program's CONNECT 4.0 demonstration from HIMSS'13, is also available for download.
