Medical Devices Neglected In EHR Chase: Report

“Interoperability of health information has been heralded for decades as a way to make medicine more effective, efficient and safer. But the focus at the national policy level on electronic health records (EHRs) might be neglecting another important part of the equation, namely interoperability of vast amounts of data coming from increasingly smarter medical devices.
“Many events, publications and conversations have focused on the information side of what technology can do. Little attention to date has been focused on the device side of that connectivity, especially as it relates to patient safety,” said a recently issued report on medical device interoperability from the Association for Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).”
