Electrical equipment used in medical practice

Medical research and clinical healthcare delivery enterprises are found to enjoy the "halo-effect" of an affiliation with a college or university because patients and families believe that cutting edge care--in the case of rare diseases--is developed in large research university hospitals. Conversely, university medical schools need patients for instructional purposes.

One of the subcommittees of International Electrotechnical Commission Technical Committee 62 (IEC TC/62) has released a number of redlines that are now open for public review.   University affiliated medical research and healthcare delivery enterprises are large stakeholders in this space.

The scope of IEC TC/62 and a link to the subcommittee home page is listed below:

Scope: To prepare international standards and other publications concerning electrical equipment, electrical systems and software used in healthcare and their effects on patients, operators, other persons and the environment. NOTE : This scope includes items that are also within the scopes of other committees and will be addressed through cooperation. Attention will focus on safety and performance (e.g. radiation protection, data security, data integrity, data privacy and environmental aspects) and will contribute to regulatory frameworks. Healthcare includes medical practice as well as emergency medical services, homecare, and support of persons with disabilities in their daily lives (i.e. Ambient Assisted Living).

Cardiac surgical procedure at Gemelli Hospital in Rome

It is our custom to collaborate with the US National Committee to the International Electrotechnical Commission (USNA/IEC) primarily, though we have significant professional relationships with academic scholars in other nations through the IEEE Standards Association and the IEEE Education & Healthcare Facilities Committee IEEE E&H).  We are happy to discuss any consensus product, any day at 11 AM Eastern time, however the expertise for responding to invitations for public comment like this is usually present during the IEEE E&H Committee meetings which take place four times monthly in European and American time zones.
