Medical device, health professionals attend first national conference on value-driven engineering
Date:4/27/2012

spread acceptance of Value-driven Engineering principles in the biomedical device industry."

During the two day conference, attendees heard from:

  • Dr. Thomas Fogarty, Fogarty Institute for Innovation: "Value Collaboration between Physicians and Engineers"
  • Dr. Robert E. Litan, Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation: "The Importance of Harnessing Bid Data with Respect to Defining the Value Equation"
  • Mike Hess, Medtronic Inc.: "What Value-driven Engineering Means to the Medical Device Industry"
  • Dr. William J. Heetderks, National Institutes of Health: "The Role of Federal Funding Agencies in the Adoption of Value-driven Engineering"
  • Dr. DeVon W. Griffin, NASA Glenn Research Center: "NASA's Need for Less Complex Medical Devices"
  • Megan Moynahan, U.S. Food and Drug Administration: "Regulatory Innovation Pathway"
  • Dr. Marc S. Penn, FACC, Summa Health System: "Clinical Utility to the Clinician"
  • Stephen P. Welby, U.S. Department of Defense: "DOD's Value Engineering Initiative"

One of the conference's highlights was presentation by students of real-world Value-driven Engineering project, including:

  • A team of students from Johns Hopkins University Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design, who won the conference grand prize for case studies, created an ultraportable, easy-to-use fetal heart rate monitor. Every year, approximately 1 million stillbirths occur and nearly 99% of these newborn deaths are in developing countries. One major cause is the lack of monitoring of the baby's status during labor. The student team's battery-powered device uses a portable microphone with a modified attachment and a smartphone to display fetal rates prior to delivery. Though Doppler monitoring devices have been proven to be more effective, they are not widely available due to their prohibitively high cost.
