Auriga Joins OR.NET Association for Medical Device Interoperability
By: Auriga, Inc.
OR.NET started as a research project commissioned by Germany's Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The concepts for integrating operating room technologies developed in the project have become the core of the Service-oriented Device Connectivity (SDC) standard. Integration of medical equipment in a network within the OR, ICU, or ER represents considerable added value to physicians, surgeons, and anesthetists. It helps improve the availability of clinical information, drive insight-based decision making, optimize workflows, mitigate the risk of alarm fatigue, and increase patient safety.
In 2019, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) added the three core standards of the IEEE 11073 SDC family to the list of "Recognized Consensus Standards." In 2020, the architecture and binding standard became an official ISO standard, ISO/IEEE 11073-20701:
The OR.NET membership benefits Auriga by offering support in implementing the new SDC standard in medical software development projects for its clients worldwide and an opportunity to influence further standard elaboration. Having access to demos, OR.NET members can assess added value early on in a realistic environment. Moreover, OR.NET members can participate in workshops and marketing activities and contact medical device manufacturers, researchers, and clinical partners.
Andrey Shastin, Technology and Business Partnering Executive at Auriga, commented:
"Auriga has accumulated more than 15 years' experience in software development for medical devices. Over these years, Auriga's engineering teams have performed dozens of interoperability research and development projects for embedded and system-level software for the medical device industry. We are pleased to become a part of OR.NET, which is at the forefront of medical device connectivity. The OR.NET membership represents a new step Auriga has taken to deliver integrated and interoperable yet safe and secure software solutions for the medical devices and IT systems of its customers, including world-leading medical equipment manufacturers."
