As we know, interoperability is an almost nonexistent feature of medical devices. This paper defines interoperability; discusses why the lack of medical device interoperability is a problem, and the scope of the problem. Possible reasons for the lack of medical device interoperability are explored. Numerous benefits to medical device interoperability are outlined and possible risks of maintaining the status quo are predicted.
