The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Office of Acquisition Services (OAS) on behalf of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and the National Personal Protective Technology Laboratory (NPPTL) intend to award a contract to the Center for Medical Interoperability, Inc. (CMI) in Nashville, TN to conduct a proof-of-concept, research and development effort whereby the collection and analysis of personal protective equipment (PPE) supply and demand information is automated for hospital administrators and other emergency response planners such as stockpile managers.

The work includes (1) selecting, hosting, and establishing a Trust Data Network, (2) developing the data liquidity satellite workspace, (3) developing a prototype data collection application/extraction tool to capture PPE supply and demand data fields from hospital software or other systems for analysis, (4) developing analysis algorithms to evaluate PPE supply and demand trends within and across the nation's hospitals, (5) demonstrating this prototype, automated PPE surveillance and monitoring system at numerous hospital networks and major medical centers (participating hospitals), and (6) documenting the lessons learned in designing and implementing the prototype.

CMI is a cooperative research and development lab founded by health systems to simplify and advance data sharing among medical technologies and systems. CMI was developed with the recognition that no such centralized group for medical interoperability existed in the United States. Additionally, CMI exists as the only certification body for the interoperability of medical systems, thus making them uniquely positioned to understand the implications of design decisions when it comes to obtaining certification for use in the United States healthcare market.
