Julian Goldman

Director of the Program on Medical Device Interoperability
Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School
Julian M. Goldman, MD is Medical Director of Biomedical Engineering for Partners HealthCare System, an anesthesiologist at the Massachusetts General Hospital, and Director of the Program on Medical Device Interoperability based at MGH, Partners, and CIMIT. Dr. Goldman founded the Medical Device "Plug-and-Play" (MD PnP) Interoperability research program in 2004 to promote innovation in patient safety and clinical care by leading the adoption of safe, secure, patient-centric integrated clinical environments. The MD PnP team has been recognized by multiple awards, including the Edward M Kennedy award for Healthcare Innovation. Dr. Goldman is Board Certified in Anesthesiology and Clinical Informatics. He completed anesthesiology residency and research fellowship in medical device informatics at the University of Colorado. He departed Colorado as a tenured associate professor to work as an executive of a medical device company. Subsequently, Dr. Goldman joined Harvard Medical School and the Department of Anesthesia, Critical Care, and Pain Medicine at MGH in 2002 as a staff anesthesiologist, where he served as a principle anesthesiologist in the MGH "Operating Room of the Future". Dr. Goldman co-chaired the FCC mHealth Task Force, the HIT Policy Committee FDASIA Workgroup regulatory subgroup, and the FCC Consumer Advisory Committee healthcare working group. He served on the NSF CISE Advisory Committee, as a Visiting Scholar in the FDA Medical Device Fellowship Program, and as a member of the CDC BSC for the NCPHI. Dr. Goldman currently serves in leadership positions in several healthcare standardization and innovation organizations including Chair of ISO Technical Committee 121, Co-Chair of the AAMI Interoperability Working Group, Co-Chair of the Healthcare Task Group of the Industrial Internet Consortium, and Chair of the Use Case Working Group of the Continua Health Alliance (now the Personal Connected Health Alliance). Dr. Goldman is an IEEE EMBS Distinguished Lecturer, and the recipient of the International Council on Systems Engineering Pioneer Award, American College of Clinical Engineering (ACCE) award for Professional Achievement in Technology, the AAMI Foundation/Institute for Technology in Health Care Clinical Application Award, and the University of Colorado Chancellor's "Bridge to the Future" award.


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. 


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
