Regenstrief and IEEE are working together to support interoperable communications of medical and personal health devices

Regenstrief Institute and the IEEE Standards Association 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.
