New and Revised IEEE 11073(TM) Standards Expand Support for Plug-and-Play, Interoperable Medical-Device Communications

[IEEE announces two new standards and a revised standard intended to support plug-and-play, interoperable medical-device communications.]

Piscataway, NJ -- IEEE, the world's largest professional association advancing technology for humanity, today announced two new standards and a revised standard intended to support plug-and-play, interoperable medical-device communications. The additions to the family of IEEE 11073™ standards approved by the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Standards Board are designed to help healthcare product vendors and integrators create devices and systems for disease management, health and fitness and independent living that can help save lives and improve quality of life for people worldwide.

In a separate press release today, IEEE announced four additional standards-development projects for the IEEE 11073 family.

“The IEEE 11073 family of standards continues to grow to expand support for interoperable medical-device communications. This support can translate into far-ranging benefits, such as potentially reducing clinical decision-making from days to minutes, assisting consumers to independently manage their own health, reducing gaps and errors across the spectrum of healthcare delivery and helping to expand the potential market for the medical devices themselves,” said Dr. Alexander Kraus, therapy manager with Biotronik Health Services of Germany and a member of the IEEE 11073-10103 Working Group. “The demand for more efficient and effective healthcare is fueling the healthcare provider IT market worldwide. Consequently, these standards are urgently needed, and the prestige of IEEE conveys to them immediate global relevance.”

The new IEEE 11073-00103 “Guide for Health informatics—Personal health device communication—Overview” defines profiles for interoperable communications among personal telehealth devices used for life activity and health/wellness monitoring in domestic home, communal home and/or mobile applications and compute engines such as health appliances, set-top boxes, cell phones and personal computers.

IEEE 11073-10103 “Standard for Health informatics—Point-of-care medical device communication—Nomenclature—Implantable device, cardiac” defines discrete terms to be included when conveying a clinically relevant summary of the information obtained from devices such as implantable pacemakers, defibrillators, devices for cardiac-resynchronization therapy and implantable cardiac monitors.

In addition to the two new standards, a revised IEEE 11073-10417 “Standard for Health informatics—Personal health device communication—Part 10417: Device specialization—Glucose meter” has been approved. IEEE 11073-10417 is designed to support plug-and-play interoperability among personal telehealth glucose meter devices and compute engines.
