Software, Device Programming/Testing
Definition : Software designed to operate non-invasive device programmer/testers, control/monitor a limited number of the functions, and/or process data obtained while testing. This software is intended to work with one or a few models of programmer/testers, usually from the same manufacturer. The software may perform a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation and analysis of the measurements performed while assessing and/or changing the characteristics (i.e., programming) of a medical device parameters, and/or while processing and or receiving information from hospital information systems. Device programming/testing software is not usually available separate from the tester but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the tester; the software is mainly used in particular areas of a healthcare facility such as cardiac and neurology departments. Dedicated device programming/testing software is available for several, frequently implantable, medical devices such as implantable pacemakers, defibrillators, cardioverters, stimulators, and infusion pumps.
