The SES MDI Interoperability Trust Gap

The Problem

Medical device interoperability (MDI) standards & Medical Technology Safety, Effectiveness & Security (SES) standards exist in parallel universes BUT products allowed for patient use must meet both the informatics interoperability technology requirements + quality, regulatory, and legal requirements.

The Question

Can a framework be created to enable
          Trusted Interoperable Product Decoupling
          ISO/IEEE 11073 SDC, IHE SDPi & HL7 FHIR Interoperability Standards
          ISO/IEC JWG7 Safety, Effectiveness & Security Standards?

Detailed background and considerations are provided in this proposal slide deck:

SES MDI Trust Gap?

What trust gap?  As illustrated in the following graphic (from the proposal presentation above), though the MDI and SES standards families have focused for decades on advancing medical technology interoperability along with quality standards for establishing interoperability trust across the technology lifecycle, an SES MDI (Safety Effectiveness & Security ... Medical Device Interoperability) "trust gap" remains between those who develop and "productize" medical technology and those who implement and use them in real-world applications and environments.

See also Hanging Gardens Framework for more background on this graphic, as well as the From Narratives to Requirements to Plug-n-Trust discussion.

Discussion Notes

  1. SES MDI TR PWI - Update for JWG7 
    1. An update on the TR discussions will be provided to ISO/IEC JWG7 during their session October 27, 2020
    2. Question:  What should be the approach for the update?  What should be included vs. omitted?
    3. Background:
      1. The current set of slides and their description are too complicated for "newbie" audiences to easily follow ...
      2. This is due to the inherent lack of background of the SES or MDI communities w.r.t. the other communities
      3. For example, a diagram that shows the Hanging Gardens model (MDI focused) and the Temple Model (SES focused) requires additional introduction to the "other" audience
      4. Standards are necessarily narrowly scoped and contents constrained ... often the experts working on Standard A do not really understand the ramifications of those working on Standard B, even though when they are applied to products (not to say decoupled Systems of Products) they have to be implemented in an integrated manner
    4. Conclusions:
      1. Setting a common VISION of the PWI is key ...
        1. PAST - PRESENT - FUTURE state 
          1. PAST - Include House of 80001-1 (Mankovich) with a Shared SES Vision of all stakeholders as being key 
          2. PRESENT - Implementation challenge because significant Assembly Required (lack of automation)  + document based + few vendor-to-vendor specifications
        2. Objectives for the FUTURE state
          1. Computable integrated cohesive specifications - automatable / validatable / CA'able 
          2. Bridging between Standards (e.g., IEC Systems Committees vs. TC/SC)
          3. All stakeholders supported 
          4. Decoupled System of Products that are SES & MDI 
        3. Resonate with ALL stakeholders, SES & MDI, technology developers / users / implementer-integrators / regulators 
      2. Timeliness of discussion - with TC215, TC62 & TC215 all reviewing / updating Strategic Business Plans (SBPs) 
        1. Establishing a common vision and roadmap to achieve the above can be at least called out in the SBPs
      3. Identify core SES MDI Concepts that should be communcated ... gently & incrementally ...
        1. Realities of Product Development (SES+MDI)
        2. Stakeholds involved ...
        3. standards involved (families / communities)
        4. SES MDI Trust Gap
        5. Computability / automation of standards and standards based solution specification, validation analytics & CA
        6. IEC Systems Committees "BRIDGING" SDOs and standards 
        7. IHE Use Case driven as the approach for "bridging" 
        8. "App for Regulatory Compliance" (Georg)
        9. Integration of Assurance CAses
        10. ...
  2. No additional topics pursued

Discussion Notes

  1. General Updates 
    1. TC215 AHG4 CA Discussions
      1. ISO/TC 215 created an Ad Hoc Group to develop a report on Conformity Assessment, current state of "assessability" of 215's standards portfolio, recommendations on what 215 should do in current and future projects to support CA activities
      2. Focus is on leveraging ISO 17000 family of standards (especially ISO 17007 CA guidance for standards development)
      3. Note:  ISO/IEEE 11073 SDC standards (incl. PKP standards, profiles like SDPi+FHIR) and this SES MDI TR) will end up in 215, thus the relevance of the AHG4's work
      4. The SES MDI approach to CA that is "regulatory ready" and integrates other work in IHE and JWG7 (e.g., assurance cases) will be represented to the AHG4.
    2. PKP Paper / EU Notified Bodies Engagement
      1. OR.NET meeting today (10/13) with (3) German notified bodies to introduce the "SDC Conformance Principles" and subsequent work 
      2. Challenge is how to help notified bodies to understand (contempentence) to understand what is being advanced 
      3. Discussions also included assessment, testability, test houses, etc.
      4. Note:  discussions included mention of assurance cases 
    3. ISO/IEC JWG7 TR Update 10/27
      1. This TR PWI is being transferred from ISO/TC 215 WG2 to ISO/IEC JWG7
      2. TR Briefing to ISO/IEC JWG7 is scheduled for October 27
      3. This briefing will include the broad concepts and approach for SES MDI using SDC / SDPI+fhir
      4. A draft presentation should be ready for initial review in next week's meeting 
    4. IEC/TC 62 Considerations for Integration of MDI into 60601 Series
      1. Medical Electrical Applications in Healthcare (including software) - proposed area of focused work
      2. TC62 evaluating committee feedback on how best to address SES MDI esp. software and AI-based technologies 
      3. Proposals include integration across 60601 standards family, updated TC Scope & biz plan, possibly even a 
  2. Review Key TR Sections / Topic

title2020-09-08 Tuesday Web Meeting


  1. General Updates 
  2. SES Requirements & Hanging Gardens Model integration


Todd Cooper Kenneth Fuchs Georg Heidenreich

Meeting Notes

  1. General Updates
    1. ISO/TC215 CAG2 considered a proposal to move the SES MDI Technical Report PWI from WG2 to JWG7; expect a resolution during the upcoming November meetings
      1. ACTION( Georg ) To work with JWG7 leadership to add an update discussion to an October JWG7 plenary meeting agenda and to review / approve the formal resolution to move the Preliminary Work Item (PWI) from WG2 to JWG7. 
    2. Noted that primary focus has been on advancing the SDPi Supplement + tooling / testing etc.  vs. detailing out this TR content; 
    3. The SES MDI Overview & Framework slide deck is still in process and will be the next milestone for this group's review.  Expected for presentation the week of the HL7/IEEE WGM September 21st 
    4. The related IEEE 11073-10700 Base Participant Key Purposes (BPKP) draft standard began pre-ballot expert review last week. (see discussion below)
  2. SES MDI - Standards Requirements Coordination per the Hanging Gardens Model
    1. Given that the IEEE 11073-10700 BPKP standard is out for pre-balloting review, this begs the question of the relationship of this standard to the SDPi profiles + SES MDI hanging gardens model etc.
    2. As indicated on the Gemini SDPi+FHIR Hanging Gardens model:
      1. The ISO/IEEE 11073 SDC standards are highly cohesive and integrated, and are therefore represented with a dashed blue line around the published and in development SDC standards
      2. The PKP layer provide detailed specifications that specify what an SDC implementation device or PARTICIPANT system must do to be "safe"  (the first "S" in SES); but it also includes security
      3. The Key Interoperability Properties (KIP) layer defines general requirements to achieve Plug-and-Trust SES at the "MDI Trust Gap" between technology suppliers, implementers, users, and regulators.  
        1. This will include formally (e.g., via ReqIF specifications) capturing requirements from 80001-1, 81001-1, 14971, 60601-xyz (when appropriate) etc. 
        2. These general requirements can then be mapped to the specific SDC PKP provisions (as well as other technologies)
      4. Taken together, the requirements from the SES MDI layer would be mapped to the provisions of the SDC/PKP standards, which are in turn mapped to the specific provisions implemented in a compliant SDC PARTICIPANT system, and tested at the network connection interface.
      5. NOTE:  This TR will endeavor to paint this picture clearly and recommend a roadmap to achieve its realization
      6. In addition to ReqIF representation & mapping, the JWG7 Assurance Case work item can be leveraged to define an SES MDI Assurance Case template (or composable assurance cases).
  3. Other Discussion Topics
    1. General observation about continuing the work of the IEEE SDC / IHE SDPi profiling to include imaging-related use cases
      1. The PoCSpeC project is focused on Endoscopy and includes device specializations such as an Endoscopy Camera 
      2. The SDPi Supplement TF-3 includes a section (carve out) for Surgery Devices, that is intended to include items such as Endoscopy Cameras and other related. 
      3. Mention was made of the ICE (AAMI 2700-1) use case for ventilator-imaging device synchronization, where the ventilator is "paused" and sync'd so the imaging device can take the picture
        1. Note:  This is a long standing use case that represents a potential application of SDC/SDPi-based SES MDI

Action Items / Tasks

  •  Georg HeidenreichWork with JWG7 & Joe Lewelling (Secretary) to add an agenda item to a JWG7 October plenary meeting to update on the SES MDI TR work + the resolution to move from WG2 to JWG7

    2. FDA Releases Final Guidance on "Multiple Function Device Products"
  2. Hanging Gardens Model Update
    1. Reviewed recently updated SDPi Hanging Gardens model 
    2. NOTE:  This report "lives" in the light green KIP SES layer
  3. SES MDI Slide Deck Review
    1. Reviewed current draft of the SDPi Slide Deck (for content for SES MDI WP)
  4. IHE SDPi Supplement / TF-1 Appendix on SES MDI Integration
    1. Reviewed draft content of DEV TF-1 Appendix A that points to this SES MDI report
    2. Note specific SES sections added to the TF sections to capture general and detailed requirements + the TF-1 Appendices for requirements mapping (incl. from standards such as 80001-1 2nd edition) and the ISO/IEEE 11073 SDC Implementation Conformance Statement (ICS) tables.
  5. Roadmap + Action Items / Tasks Review
    1. Brief review of the Technical Report drafting from this point out - intent is to get the slide deck updated in August and an initial draft ready in September
    2. JWG7 Leadership can be updated using the slide deck - though per Georg Heidenreich"less is more" and perhaps a focused straight-forward slide presentation would be more ... "consumable"!
