Program-unique Terms

1. Product Structure
2. Unit Testing
3. Program not to be used for clinical purposes
4. Indemnity to IBM
5. HL7 Vocabulary
6. Limitations by country

1. Product Structure

The IBM WebSphere Message Broker Connectivity Pack for Healthcare (Part Number D0H8CLL) contains all physical media for the Program. Licensee must obtain entitlements to use the Program for each installed instance of IBM WebSphere Message Broker on which the Program is deployed for testing or for production purposes, except as provided in paragraph 2., "Unit Testing" below.

2. Unit Testing

The Program's license authorizes multiple developers to install a maximum of one copy per developer of the Program (Part Number D0H8CLL) on a single Microsoft Windows machine or a single Linux machine running on Intel, for purposes of Unit Testing.

For these purposes, "Unit Testing" is limited to the testing of configurations written or generated by such developer to confirm that such configuration functions as designed.

Exclusions: authorized Unit Testing does not include any of the following:

a. testing message flows on servers separate from the developer's machine. The developer may create local message flows that connect to remote servers hosting non-production applications and services in a unit-test environment;

b. exchanging messages with any production application or system; or

c. simulating production workloads for the purpose of testing scalability of any code, application or system in an integration test environment

3. Program not to be used for clinical purposes

The Program is capable of being used as a medical device data system to transfer, store, and convert data from one format to another. Therefore, notwithstanding that the Program may occasionally transmit data to bedside medical devices (e.g., for polling and telemetry), IBM grants no license for use of the Program to control any bedside medical device for clinical or treatment purposes (for example, but without limitation, the administration of medication, anaesthetics, saline solutions and the like), and all such use of the Program for clinical or treatment purposes is prohibited.

In addition the Program is not intended or licensed for any of the following:

1. use for active patient monitoring or decision support;
2. use in any active monitoring that depends on the timeliness of data transmission; or
3. use where the Program is depended on for immediate clinical action.

IBM is not responsible for any additional regulatory clearance that may be required for any such use. Even if IBM separately agrees to extend the scope of the licence to allow any such use, Licensee must comply with any associated regulatory requirement.

4. Indemnity to IBM

Licensee will indemnify International Business Machines Corporation and its affiliated companies against any and all third party claims and liability arising directly or indirectly from any use of the Program by or for Licensee for a use or purpose that is prohibited by the provisions of the foregoing section 3., "Program not to be used for clinical purposes".

5. HL7 Vocabulary

This product includes all or a portion of the HL7 Vocabulary database, or is derived from the HL7 Vocabulary database, subject to a license from Health Level Seven International. Your use of the HL7 Vocabulary database and HL7 codes also is subject to this license, a copy of which is accessible through the following link: The current complete HL7 Vocabulary database is also available through this link.

6. Limitations by country
