Great news in Healthcare IT News:

LiveData has been awarded a $70,000 Small Business Innovation grant in order to
develop a plug-and-play feature to implement standards for OR workflow
and medical device interoperability. The plug-and-play feature will enable devices to work together, to
create safety interlocks, and help ensure that clinicians make
decisions based upon all available information.

LiveData's provides data integration, mostly in the surgical suite. Unlike video systems from Stryker and many others, LiveData combines real time medical device data with IT systems (EMR, PACS, etc.) and video.

LiveData will team with Draper Labs, Massachusetts General Hospital and CIMIT to do feasibility work in the medical device plug-and-play architecture called the Integrated Clinical Environment or ICE. LiveData will provide the software foundation for the grant project.
