Track Name

Point-of-care Medical Device and Implantable Tracking

Submitting WG/Project/Implementer Group

This track provides a set of simple test cases for Tracking Medical Devices (i.e. diagnostic, therapeutic, monitoring) and Implantables (biologics/tissue/cells and non-biologics/life-supporting/life-sustaining) at point of care addresses current problems relate to information accuracy and it provides procedure contextual information. This track specifies test cases related FHIR STU3 Procedure and Device resources used to report information from the point-of-care to enterprise system consistent with the IHE PCC Point-of-care Medical Device Tracking Supplement.


  • Implantable medical devices are costly and concerns about illegitimate (i.e., counterfeit, stolen) products has become a global issue
  • Post-market surveillance of implantable medical devices can be challenging
  • Implantable medical device adverse events and recalls pose a patient safety issue
  • Acquiring medical device data used at the point-of-care is difficult to retrieve for reuse at a later time
  • Closes the loop on data acquisition at the point-of-care to support reporting of medical device data
    • Medical device data used for:
      • Continuum of care (e.g., Discharge Summary, Referrals)
      • Registries (e.g., Total Joint Registry)
      • Payers (e.g., government provided, private insurance)
    • Can associate a medical device used for monitoring a disease or symptom of a disease (e.g., vital sign monitors, pulse oximeters, blood glucose monitors) to a patient for querying the device or procedure using the UDI
  • Increase patient safety
    • Traceability of medical devices (avoid use of counterfeit or illegitimate products)
    • Quality issues identified (e.g., recalls, adverse events)
  • Increase accurate medical device data capture at the point-of-care
    • Eliminates human error from manual medical device data entry
