From Narratives to Requirements to Plug-and-Trust - Tooling for a New Level of Testability & Rigor

The intent of the Gemini SDPi+FHIR program is to establish a new level of requirements detail and traceability from user narratives to use cases to requirements that are expressed in a clear, concise and TESTABLE ASSERTION form that can be mapped and traced through all the way to the interoperable "plug-n-trust" interface that is tested.  Establishing a set of specification formats and supporting tool chain is the challenge.  

This  discussion slide deck details the approach being developed for this program:

RI+MC+RR for MedTech Specifications Initiative

During the January 2021 review of areas that should be advanced in this Gemini SES MDI program, three linked areas were identified as key opportunities for the work, as initially indicated in the 2021 Year 3 Update presentation:

RIRequirements Interoperability –  Ability to integrate & automate requirements and capabilities from component specifications & standards to enable traceability & coverage at CA of the component product interface

MC Model Centric – Transition from a document-centric to a computable model-based "single source of truth" specification from which the Technical Framework becomes a view of the model

RR Regulatory Ready – Enable CA test reports that are genuinely "regulatory submission ready" (e.g., inclusion in a U.S. FDA 510(k) submission package)

A set of confluence sandbox discussion pages have been created to support discussions and short-fuse pilot projects for these interlinked areas, including

Conclusions from these short term pilots - anticipated for end of "Summer" 2021 (Northern Hemisphere!) will directly impact the SDPi Supplement (1.0) specification as well as the processes and tooling utilized within the Gemini SES MDI program in general.
