This Interactive Medical Devices Mind Map provides an integrated look into the medical device space. Subject matter experts have provided links to content resources from qualified sources on topics like risk management, quality and compliance, device interoperability, and much more.

The idea of medical device interoperability is to allow medical devices and systems to work together in order to enable workflow improving technologies and to improve patient safety while reducing the cost of patient care. Information should be surrounded with enough contextual understanding so information systems can make decisions on the data in a safe and effective way. In order to achieve medical device interoperability, medical device interfaces need to be developed. 

It has become important to apply modern systems engineering solutions, such as interoperability, to improve patient safety and reduce costs. One area in which these methods will be very important is in the design of point of care integration of devices and their processes.  Ensuring medical device interoperability and understanding the requirements of today while planning for future requirements will enable easy transition from current practices to a more integrated system in the future.
