Good FDA Blog on Data Interoperability

Great FDA blog post on data interoperability with devices in the hospital setting. Let move this into the patient world as well as clinical settings.

I like this part:

  • An infusion pump that administers medication to a patient also connects to the hospital’s electronic health record system where the physician inputs orders for specific amounts of medication to be delivered at specific times. If the infusion pump and the electronic health record are not interoperable, with clocks that are synchronized, medication errors could occur. 
Ok what about insulin pumps, cgms, meters and life outside the hospital with diabetes?
