Remotely operated fault detection and automated reporting technologies that monitor emergency power systems and provide real time alerts when faults are detected can be truly life saving.
Powered for Patients is excited to partner with industry leaders providing this technology through its NIPP Security & Resilience Challenge. This partnership will help Powered for Patients and its technology provider Talus Analytics develop a prototype that can synthesize individual data streams from different vendor platforms into a single dashboard with a Red, Yellow, Green risk level indicator.
As part of this critically important collaboration, Powered for Patients is asking technology companies to undertake the following activities to help improve patient safety by harnessing the power of fault detection and automated reporting technologies:
- Participate in initial discussions with Powered for Patients project leaders, engineers and scientists about your technology platform and its general capabilities. These discussions will help Powered for Patients create a data dictionary of fault indicators across different systems while assessing what fault indicators or combinations of fault indicators should be classified as red, yellow or green threat levels.
- Attend face to face meetings with Powered for Patients project leaders and other companies manufacturing fault detection and automated reporting systems to discuss common and unique traits across different vendor platforms. This discussion will also address optimal approaches to synthesizing data streams from different vendor systems into a single dashboard with a Red, Yellow, Green threat ranking. As part of this discussion, technology companies will have the opportunity to demonstrate how their existing technologies can provide this synthesized data feed, either currently or with additional R&D.
- Attend a broader stakeholder meeting with other fault detection and automated reporting companies, government officials, critical healthcare facilities and utilities (electric, water and waste water) to discuss information sharing protocols around the sharing of remotely monitored generator data during disasters.
- Participate in discussions about commercializing technology that synthesizes data streams from different vendor systems into a single dashboard with a Red, Yellow, Green threat ranking.
- Work with clients currently employing fault detection and automated reporting systems in critical healthcare facilities and water and waste water systems to encourage their participation in this project. Participation can take the form of involvement in discussions about the sharing of remotely monitored generator data during disasters along with participation as pilot sites for the testing of a prototype to synthesize multiple data streams into a single dashboard
The Benefits of Engaging in the Powered for Patients NIPP Security & Resilience Challenge
A key requirement for Powered for Patients as part of its NIPP Security & Resilience Challenge contract is detailing a “transition to use” plan that shows DHS how the proposed prototype synthesizing multiple data streams from emergency power systems into a single dashboard can move from prototype to a commercially available product.
To the extent that technology companies currently have or could easily develop such a technology, their engagement in this initiative will provide a valuable opportunity to be involved in the early and ongoing discussions that will help shape how a synthesizing data tool is ultimately developed.
Technology companies working with Powered for Patients on this project will also be able to demonstrate technology leadership and thought leadership with clients, prospective clients and other important stakeholders including key government officials.
Powered for Patients will gladly recognize all participating technology companies on the Powered for Patients NIPP Challenge web pages and will work individually with participating companies to help highlight their engagement through various communications channels.
