Medical Device Connectivity Follow Up Webinar

Time: 25 September 2019, 12:00pm to 1:30pm AEDT

The Biomedical College Engineers Australia announce a free follow-up webinar in association with “Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise” (IHE) and Health Informatics Society of Australia (HISA).

Learn about:

  • existing medical device connectivity profiles , and
  • user requirements for a Service oriented Device Connection (SDC) profile.

You can see a video of the workshop (around 4 hours long) and related documents including the presentations here.
The implementation of electronic medical records (EMRs) and increasingly sophisticated and connectable medical devices are changing the work practices of biomedical engineers, as well as healthcare information technology departments.

The role of medical devices is rapidly progressing from patient physiological monitoring and care delivery via drug and fluid delivery systems to include specialist anaesthesia, operating theatre, intensive care and emergency department systems.

“Devices” increasingly include health software as a Medical Device (SAMD) and patient-connected systems leveraging AI/machine learning powered technologies. Alongside this has been the widespread adoption of specialist and general EMR systems. These systems can no longer operate as independent entities glued together by clinicians transferring and interpreting data.

This webinar is sponsored by: BD and Seimens-Healthineers.
