This points to fundamental scientific and technical challenges posed by the rapidly expanding digital environment in medicine and health care and they identify critical research advances that are needed to enable the design and manufacture of new generations of increasingly complex, interconnected, and interoperating medical device cyber-physical systems that will offer innovative new capabilities and function far more safely, securely, and reliably than today's medical devices.
