The Medical CPS workshop provides a forum for the presentation of research and development covering all aspects of High Confidence Medical Devices, Software, and Systems (HCMDSS), which is essential to support innovative, networked Medical Device (MD) systems to improve safety and efficiency in health care. The past five workshops have enjoyed a healthy participation of 35-40 attendees, and have provided a working forum for medical device specialists, including researchers, developers, and caregivers, from clinical environments, industry, research laboratories, academia, and government with the goal of advancing science, technology, and practice to overcome crucial issues with medical devices, software, and systems and challenges facing the design, manufacture, certification, and use of medical devices. This workshop features medical device and clinical experts from all over the world.
The topics to be covered in the workshop will range across all aspects of medical device software modeling and synthesis for safety, assurance, security and control, including but not limited to:

Ubiquitous connectivity of consumer and industrial equipment has laid the foundation for the Internet of Things (IoT) with projections of 50 billion devices connected and the addition of $15 trillion to the global GDP within 15 years. Applied to healthcare, the Medical IoT (MIoT) may enable revolutionary improvements in the quality and safety of healthcare, unleash innovation, and reduce the cost of healthcare delivery. To meet this vision, safety, security, and interoperability must be baked into the foundation of the MIoT.
Short Bio: Julian M. Goldman, MD is Medical Director of Biomedical Engineering for Partners HealthCare System, an anesthesiologist at the Massachusetts General Hospital, and Director of the Program on Medical Device Interoperability based at MGH, Partners, and CIMIT. Dr. Goldman founded the federally funded Medical Device "Plug-and-Play" (MD PnP) Interoperability research program in 2004 to promote innovation in patient safety and clinical care by leading the adoption of patient-centric integrated clinical environments. The MD PnP team has been recognized by multiple awards, including the Edward M Kennedy award for Healthcare Innovation. Dr. Goldman is Board Certified in Anesthesiology and Clinical Informatics. He completed anesthesiology residency and research fellowship in medical device informatics at the University of Colorado. He departed Colorado as a tenured associate professor to work as an executive of a medical device company. Subsequently, Dr. Goldman joined Harvard Medical School and the Department of Anesthesia, Critical Care, and Pain Medicine at MGH in 2002 as a staff anesthesiologist, where he served as a principle anesthesiologist in the MGH "Operating Room of the Future". Dr. Goldman co-chaired the FCC mHealth Task Force, the HIT Policy Committee FDASIA Workgroup regulatory subgroup, and the FCC Consumer Advisory Committee healthcare working group. He served on the NSF CISE Advisory Committee, as a Visiting Scholar in the FDA Medical Device Fellowship Program, and as a member of the CDC BSC for the NCPHI. Dr. Goldman currently serves in leadership positions in several medical device standardization organizations including Chair of ISO Technical Committee 121, Chair of the Use Case Working Group of the Continua Health Alliance, Co-Chair of the AAMI Interoperability Working Group, and Chair of ASTM Committee F29.

The talk will move from capsule robots for gastrointestinal endoscopy toward a new generation of surgical robots and devices, having a relevant reduction in invasiveness as the main driver for innovation. Wireless capsule endoscopy has already been extremely helpful for the diagnosis of diseases in the small intestine. Specific wireless capsule endoscopes have been proposed for colon inspection, but have never reached the diagnostic accuracy of standard colonoscopy. In the first part of the talk, we will discuss enabling technologies that have the potential to transform colonoscopy and gastroscopy. These technologies include magnetic manipulation of capsule endoscopes, water jet propulsion, real-time pose tracking, and intermagnetic force measurement. The second part of the talk will give an overview about the development of novel robotic solutions for single incision robotic surgery. In particular, a novel surgical robotic platform based on local magnetic actuation will be presented as a possible approach to further minimize access trauma. The final part of the talk will introduce an open-source component-based design environment for capsule robots that aims at facilitating researchers in the field in exploring novel concepts and reducing the time to achieve a functional prototype.

The CyberCardia project is part of the NSF’s initiative to advance the state-of-the-art in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS): engineered systems that are built from, and depend upon, the seamless integration of computation and physical components. The goal of this project is to develop far more realistic cardiac device models and controllers than the ones that currently exist. The CyberCardia platform will provide a basis to test and validate medical devices faster and at a far lower cost than existing methods. It will also provide a platform for designing optimal, patient-specific device therapies, thereby lowering the risk to the patient. CyberCardia includes collaborators from seven leading universities a nd centers CMU, RIT, UM, GTech, UPenn, FC-ESE, SBU, TUW and FDA.
