In addition to publicly accessible content on this website, other program artifacts are located here:

The MD PnP GitHub project 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. 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).  Collaborators are also using the site to communicate with one another regarding related research.  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.  

The University of Illinois Engineering Wiki contains open source code for MD PnP JavaScript Testing with Jasmine. 

Kansas State University's MDCF page provides open-source Medical Device Coordination Framework (MDCF) for exploring solutions related to designing, implementing, verifying, and certifying, systems of integrated medical devices.

Members of the MD PnP community automatically qualify for the RTI Infrastructure Community program for implementation of the Data Distribution Service (DDS), which includes access to their library of source code and OMG DDS software. RTI's program is intended to make it easy to build, test, integrate, and deploy high-performance, mission critical distributed systems. If you would like an invitation to RTI's program for DDS, become a member of the MD PnP community here.
