Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR INTERSYSTEM DEVICE EXCHANGE
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ POUR CENTRAL DE DISPOSITIFS INTERSYSTÈMES
Abstract
(EN) A device exchange transports messages between autonomous devices in a medical environment. The autonomous devices perform various tasks in the medical environment, such as surgical device control, drug infusion, video recordation, and user interfaces, for example. Each autonomous device has a device specification, published and stored by the device exchange and available to other autonomous devices. The device specification indicates, for each autonomous device, an identifier, a set of outputs and a set of inputs, or commands. Devices interoperate by messages including the device identifier and an output or command without translation or transformation mechanisms such as scripts, protocol translations, drivers or interface modules because each message is based on the published device specification available to all the devices connected to the exchange. Interconnected medical devices therefore interoperate without the need for reconfiguration because each device has internal logic for understanding the messages it sends and receives via the exchange.
(FR) Selon l'invention, un central de dispositifs transporte des messages entre des dispositifs autonomes dans un environnement médical. Les dispositifs autonomes effectuent diverses tâches dans l'environnement médical, telles qu'une commande de dispositif chirurgical, une perfusion de médicament, un enregistrement vidéo et des interfaces utilisateur, par exemple. Chaque dispositif autonome possède une spécification de dispositif, publiée et stockée par le central de dispositifs et disponible aux autres dispositifs autonomes. La spécification de dispositif indique, pour chaque dispositif autonome, un identificateur, un ensemble de sorties et un ensemble d'entrées, ou des instructions. Les dispositifs interagissent par des messages comprenant l'identificateur de dispositif et une sortie ou instruction sans mécanismes de traduction ni de transformation, tels que scripts, traductions de protocole, pilotes ou modules d'interface, étant donné que chaque message est fondé sur la spécification de dispositif publiée, disponible à tous les dispositifs connectés au central. Les dispositifs médicaux interconnectés interagissent donc sans qu'une reconfiguration ne soit nécessaire étant donné que chaque dispositif dispose d'une logique interne pour comprendre les messages qu'il envoie et reçoit par l'intermédiaire du central.
