MDDI WirelessMedDev.com East Keynote: Wireless capable medical devices with significant software and data integration are the future

This keynote was presented at MD+DI Wireless Connectivity in Medical Devices Conference East (WirelessMedDev.com) on November 28, 2012.

Topics discussed:
* Things that kill and harm human beings today are very different than just 100 years ago
* Health policy and payments are shifting to deal with new realities
* Marketplace and industry challenges for device vendors
* Why wireless connectivity is good business
* Why wireless connectivity is a disruptive innovation

Key takeaways:
* Wireless is a business enabler but there’s a lot to consider.
* Hardware, sensors, and software are transient businesses but data lives forever. He who owns, integrates, and uses data wins in the end.
* Data from devices is too important and specialized to be left to software vendors, managed service providers, and system integrators.

  14. NETSPECTIVE www.netspective.com 14 Key regulatory questions Will the FDA accept

    wireless in safety- critical systems? Is wireless safe enough for medical devices? Yes Yes but you must prove it The best regulatory strategy is to abstract design specifications to minimize sustaining engineering: • Intended use • Predicate device(s) • Design approach and how OTS • components are used • Design input specifications • Risk and hazard analysis Abstract Specifications: • Remove dynamic characteristics • Manufacturer, model, version • Performance specifications • Clock speed • Memory • Storage • Industry standards • Third party certifications Source: Tim Gee, MedicalConnectivity.com
  15. NETSPECTIVE www.netspective.com 15 Key design questions Choose a radio or

    develop one? Antenna Design? Provisioning & Support? Choose off the shelf (OTS) multi- radio chips with extended support Follow mobile phone designs Buy or build a BaaS, M2M, or IOT Solution OTS Selection Criteria: • Frequency of changes • Frequency of patches • Adherence to standards • Potential to strip out features • Suitable suppliers Appropriate Frequency: • Medical Implant Communications Service (MICS) 402-405 MHz • Wireless Medical Telemetry Service (WMTS) 608-614 MHz, 1,395-1,400 MHz, and 1,429-1,432 MHz • Medical Body Area Network (MBAN) 2,360-2,390 MHz secondary basis, 2,390-2,400 Source: Tim Gee, MedicalConnectivity.com

  18. NETSPECTIVE www.netspective.com 18 Key marketing & product management questions Can

    customer manage the technology? Does customer have the existing infrastructure? Can you deliver after you build it? They need a good IT and test environment to ensure reliability They need reliable power, broadband coverage, and good WiFi You need installation, provisioning, testing, and remote support infrastructure Infrastructure Considerations: • Interoperability, coexistence • Shared or dedicated infrastructure • System and device level security • Capacity/bandwidth • WMTS: 16 MHz bandwidth • Wi-Fi: >450 MHz bandwidth • MBAN: 40 MHz bandwidth • Manageability Source: Tim Gee, MedicalConnectivity.com
  19. NETSPECTIVE www.netspective.com 19 Key human capital questions Do we have

    strategy expertise? Do we have development expertise? Do we have unit and internal testing expertise? Do we have systems and customer environment testing expertise? Do we have regulatory expertise? Do we have certification expertise? You can’t go it alone, get help now
  20. NETSPECTIVE www.netspective.com 20 Don’t give up data to others without

    a fight Software vendors, systems integrators, and others don’t have your best interest in mind Cloud Services Management Dashboards Data Transformation (ESB, HL7) BaaS Gateway (DDS, XMPP , ESB) Enterprise Data RCM, Financials, EHRs Device Inventory Cross Device App Workflows Alarm Notifications Patient Context Monitoring Device Teaming Device Management Report Generation HIT Integration Remote Surveillance Device Data SSL VPN Patient Self-Management Platforms Device Utilization Device reimbursement Device profitability
