He started at the MD PnP program in September of 2010, and is currently writing his dissertation for a PhD in computer science under Professor Insup Lee at the University of Pennsylvania.



9:15 AM A WALKTHROUGH TOUR OF THE MEDICAL DEVICE PLUG AND PLAY LAB

A true pioneer in the industry, experience first hand how the MD PnP Interoperability Lab is making interoperability the foundation of next generation patient care. 

10:30 AM WORKSHOP A: ADOPT OPEN STANDARDS AND INTEROPERABLE TECHNOLOGIES TO SECURELY INTEGRATE YOUR MEDICAL DEVICE TO CLINICAL ENVIRONMENTS

Hospitals often have a lot of constraints when it comes to how the network is configured and system requirements for medical devices often vary from hospital to hospital. Though manufacturers are certainly experts when it comes to their own devices, at the enterprise level, hospitals need a clear map of device capabilities and constraints and should know how their equipment performs as part of an ecosystem made up of multiple systems and devices. Join this workshop and brainstorm with a nexus of clinicians, clinical engineers, computer scientists, hospital operations and IS Operation experts who work closely with medical device manufacturers, standards organizations, software companies, and other collaborators and 

·Explore how the adoption of open standards and interoperable technologies have the potential to dramatically improve patient care
·Hear best practices to evaluate interoperability, plan future products that are interoperable and conceptualize the medical internet of things as the next generation of devices
·Discuss challenges Health IT leaders are facing  to safely assemble medical device and HIT components to create a connected clinical system beyond EHR
·Walk away inspired to think about how you can contribute to the medical internet of things
·Learn about a larger body of work that’s been done that can be leveraged to accelerate your own product development so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel
