Regenstrief and IEEE are working together to support interoperable communications of medical and personal health devices
Regenstrief Institute and the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for collaboration in standards development. Regenstrief, developers of LOINC®, and IEEE, developers of the 11073™ standards, are connecting standardized terminology and methods of data communication to enhance the interoperability of traditional medical devices and personal health devices. These standards facilitate communication between medical, health care, and wellness devices and with external computer systems. By enabling interoperable data exchange, this work will support patients living independently with chronic diseases.
Together with the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Regenstrief and IEEE-SA are creating ways for hospital, healthcare software engineers, and device manufacturers to integrate clinical data from these devices using standards.
