1. A method of remotely aggregating and selectively allowing data sharing and remote access to medical device data from a plurality of facilities, comprising the steps of:

  • receiving at a central computer system remotely located from a plurality of facilities a plurality of established medical device data sets from the plurality of facilities,combining and storing the plurality of established medical device data sets from each of the facilities within a database within a memory of the central computer system;

    organizing the combined established medical device data sets into peer groups according to one or more assigned criteria of the facilities wherein at least one of the criteria is selected from the group consisting of institution type, number of beds, medical device type, medical device manufacturer, clinical care area, and service line;

    selectively allowing a facility remote access to a central reporting application that is hosted at the remotely located central computer system, wherein the central reporting application is adapted to electronically receive a peer group selection and search parameters from the facility for querying the combined established medical device data sets stored within the memory;

    displaying a visualization of information associated with the established medical device data sets, the information being limited based upon the peer group selection and search parameters requested by the facility; and

    transmitting configuration information associated with the information associated with the established medical device data sets to an external computing system, the configuration information for configuration of one or more medical devices.
