Download as PDF khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 32 / Friday, February 15, 2019 / Notices between medical devices and systems enabled, new models for monitoring, device interaction, and control— including the development of closed loop, autonomous and semiautonomous systems—can be realized. These new models will provide greater support for patient safety, decrease medical errors, reduce provider burden, reduce practice variability across healthcare facilities/ geographic areas and, ultimately, will enhance medical care quality and outcomes. Future Vision: When people with serious injuries or illness are hospitalized medical device additions and changes are automatically recorded with no deficit in patient safety, loss in data fidelity, or data security as the patient transitions across the continuum of care. Additional medical devices can be added or removed as the patient’s status changes and details of these changes, calibration of the instruments, and each equipment’s unique device identifier [UDI] and configuration settings are recorded and synchronized. If a piece of equipment breaks, it can be switched seamlessly with a device from another vendor. Data and settings from patient medical devices, such as insulin pumps, are identified, integrated, and time synchronized, and select data are included in the electronic health record. As autonomous capabilities are added, real-time care is logged, and supervisory control established to ensure the provision of real-time patient monitoring and support. When providers are not available, or have competing demands, medical devices will function in a closed loop, autonomous manner with appropriate safety and control measures to stabilize the patient. Data will flow through changes in equipment that occur in moves from the emergency room, to the operating room, to the intensive care unit, to a rehabilitation facility, and finally to the home. This will allow for data and metadata to flow even as changes in equipment are mapped to individual patient needs and environment. Each change in equipment configuration will be noted in the supervisory system/medical record and in the metadata (e.g., the UDI) generated by the device. The resulting patient record from these systems will include device data, metadata, and care documentation. These patient records can be stored and analyzed using medical black box recorder-equivalents to assess adverse events or examine unexpected positive outcomes. This will also improve the consistency and quality of care; create real-time VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:41 Feb 14, 2019 Jkt 247001 automated care systems; create a learning health system. These types of records and the realtime systems interactions they enable are widely used or are being actively developed in other industries, such as the industrial controls and autonomous systems in the automotive, aviation, and energy sectors. That is not the case for healthcare. While there are many factors that may inhibit real-time interaction in a medical setting, interoperability solutions that are relevant for healthcare and patient safety need to be developed. Seamlessly flowing, interoperable data from medical devices and systems, when utilized effectively, could significantly enhance patient outcomes, identify and reduce errors, enhance the efficiency of care delivery, reduce development times and costs, improve standardization/consistency of care delivery, and decrease healthcare provider burnout. Next Steps: The Government anticipates hosting a conference in June/ July 2019 to allow for additional engagement. The results of the conference discussion, in addition to the written responses to this RFI, will be used to determine next steps in addressing federal efforts in interoperability of data, platforms, and medical devices. This RFI is solely issued to engage with interested parties to inform the Government on developing a strategy for medical device, data, and platform interoperability. The Government will not reimburse costs associated with participating in the conference. The Government may contact respondents regarding their submissions, such as to ask questions, to learn more, or to notify them of further developments related to the effort.
