    Introduction: Wireless technologies have been used for decades in medical devices. Yet only with the recent advent of wireless

    broadband technologies and wireless for mobile medical devices have applications skyrocketed.

    Problem: Most wireless protocol and systems now in home settings have been repurposed and adapted from other applications,

    compromising their original purposing and design for high-reliability, secure, life-critical medical applications. More than any other technology employed in modern medicine, wireless connectivity calls upon the resources of

    government and numerous industry groups: medical devices, information technology, RFID, telecommunications and cellular telephone to mention but a few.

    The disparate nature of these groups leaves several unresolved gaps in the implementation of most wireless medical

    devices and systems. These gaps must e.g., QoS, data integrity, signal security, EMC compatibility, wireless

    coexistence--be addressed in order to avoid undesired behaviors and potential safety risks. - Inform and Educate on current wireless health care applications and issues, especially with federal Goals: agencies

    - Devise strategies for present and future technologies

    - Develop pathways to ensure the safe, secure and reliable use of wireless technology in healthcare - Identify stakeholders from different industries, stimulate dialog, and develop collaborative efforts
