The Interoperability of Medical Devices, Data, and Platforms to Enhance Patient Care

Mon, 2020-03-23 13:00

In February 2019 the Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) Program's Health Information Technology Research and Development Interagency Working Group (HITRD IWG) issued a Request for Information (RFI) to collect input from industry, academia, and nongovernmental organizations on new approaches to solve the interoperability issues between medical devices, data, and platforms. On July 17, 2019, the group followed up with an in-person Listening Session that included 76 representatives from the device, standards, academic, and medical communities, and government. This report is a summary of the February 2019 Request for Information and July 2019 Listening Session.

Federal Health Information Technology Research and Development Strategic Framework

Mon, 2020-03-23 12:59

This strategic R&D Framework was developed to improve medical, functional, and public health outcomes through R&D in the use of data and IT for advanced health IT applications and improved detection of existing health concerns and discovery of emerging issues. It is expected that this Framework will help the United States capitalize on the full potential of health IT to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare and lengthen and improve the quality of American lives. This Framework will also help Federal agencies work across silos and prioritize areas for transformation by investing in tools and technologies that open new areas of discovery and better coordination of R&D activities. It does not define specific research agendas for individual Federal agencies; instead, agencies will continue to pursue priorities consistent with their missions, capabilities, authorities, and budgets, while maximizing planning, collaboration, and coordination with one another through the HITRD IWG to avoid duplicative efforts.

Research and Development Opportunities in Video and Image Analytics

Mon, 2020-03-23 12:57

Every day, more human activities are assisted by computer vision, a form of artificial intelligence (AI) that enables an automated understanding of the visual world. Computer vision research drives new applications in the public safety domain for both government and industry. The Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) Program's Video and Image Analytics (VIA) Team was formed to collaborate and engage in this rapidly developing research area. VIA, which includes researchers from 30 government organizations spanning nearly all Federal agencies, developed these research and development (R&D) opportunities to foster a robust multisector ecosystem that supports the Nation's requirements in video and image analytics...
