This keynote was presented at MD+DI Wireless Connectivity in Medical Devices Conference East (WirelessMedDev.com) on November 28, 2012.

Topics discussed:
* Things that kill and harm human beings today are very different than just 100 years ago
* Health policy and payments are shifting to deal with new realities
* Marketplace and industry challenges for device vendors
* Why wireless connectivity is good business
* Why wireless connectivity is a disruptive innovation

Key takeaways:
* Wireless is a business enabler but there’s a lot to consider.
* Hardware, sensors, and software are transient businesses but data lives forever. He who owns, integrates, and uses data wins in the end.
* Data from devices is too important and specialized to be left to software vendors, managed service providers, and system integrators.

    • NETSPECTIVE Key regulatory questions Will the FDA accept wireless in safetycritical systems? Is wireless safe enough for medical devices? Yes Yes but you must prove it The best regulatory strategy is to abstract design specifications to minimize sustaining engineering: • Intended use • Predicate device(s) • Design approach and how OTS • components are used • Design input specifications • Risk and hazard analysis Abstract Specifications: • Remove dynamic characteristics • Manufacturer, model, version • Performance specifications • Clock speed • Memory • Storage • Industry standards • Third party certifications Source: Tim Gee, MedicalConnectivity.com www.netspective.com 14
    • NETSPECTIVE Key design questions Choose a radio or develop one? Choose off the shelf (OTS) multiradio chips with extended support Antenna Design? Follow mobile phone designs Provisioning & Support? Buy or build a BaaS, M2M, or IOT Solution OTS Selection Criteria: • Frequency of changes • Frequency of patches • Adherence to standards • Potential to strip out features • Suitable suppliers Appropriate Frequency: • Medical Implant Communications Service (MICS) 402-405 MHz • Wireless Medical Telemetry Service (WMTS) 608-614 MHz, 1,395-1,400 MHz, and 1,429-1,432 MHz • Medical Body Area Network (MBAN) 2,360-2,390 MHz secondary basis, 2,390-2,400 Source: Tim Gee, MedicalConnectivity.com www.netspective.com 15
