November 5, 2014 - “Medical Device Innovation Using Cyber-physical Systems”

John Hatcliff, Kansas State University

John Hatcliff presents clinical motivation for "medical application platforms" MAPs and provides an overview of key elements of the safety, architecture, and engineering principles embodied in the Medical Device Coordination Framework (MDCF) -- an open-source MAP implementation developed in NSF and NIH-funded research programs that adheres to the Integrated Clinical Environment (ICE) architecture. A key focus of this talk are the principles necessary (but not sufficient) for supporting regulatory and third party certification regimes that provide notions of compositionality and reuse of component assurance arguments across regulatory submissions.

The concept of “system of systems” architecture is increasingly prevalent in many critical domains. Such systems allow information to be pulled from a variety of sources, analyzed to discover correlations and trends, stored to enable real-time and post-hoc assessment, mined to better inform decision-making, and leveraged to automate control of system units. In contrast, medical devices have often been developed as monolithic stand-alone units. The movement toward devices with connectivity is accelerating, but the vendor and regulatory communities are still searching for appropriate architecture principles that allow devices with connectivity to be flexibly composed into interoperable systems following sound engineering principles that provide appropriate levels of safety and assurance.

The emerging notion of a MAP provides solution strategies to address these challenges. A MAP is a safety-and security-critical real-time computing platform for (a) integrating heterogeneous devices, medical IT systems, and information displays via a communication infrastructure and (b) hosting application programs (i.e., “apps”) that provide medical utility via the ability to both acquire information from and exert control over integrated devices, IT systems, and displays.
