Data Interface Systems

Definition : Systems designed to allow most or all of the independent computerized networks, information systems, and/or medical devices of a healthcare facility to communicate with each other (i.e., interfacing) by controlling a continuous smooth transmission of data and/or other information between the computerized medical devices and information systems. Data interface systems typically include electronic workstations to process and control the information flow, wireless and/or cable connections to devices, equipment, and local or whole hospital information systems. These systems frequently include and/or are associated with a dedicated connection server. The system also includes appropriate software that contains the languages and codes that the applications use to communicate with each other, as well as the hardware, and/or the information systems. Data interface systems that interact with medical devices are considered medical devices and must follow the regulations (e.g., FDA, EC) concerning these types of medical devices. Dedicated data interface systems may be intended to provide a link between medical devices and information systems and/or between two or more information systems. Data interface systems may be intended for a particular set of devices and information systems or flexible enough to permit the modification and/or integration of new devices and systems from different manufacturers and technologies.
