Medical device connetivity based on IEEE 11073 SDC
Added clinical value of secure and dynamic networking with SDC
The architecture of the IEEE 11073 SDC standards family is optimized to the advanced requirements of high acuity environments such as the OR, ICU and NICU. It enables the integration of relevant devices, applications and the hospital IT systems. The web services-based architecture provides reliable multi-directional data exchange, which can include remote control of medical devices.
The networking requirements of SDC are minimal. SDC communication protocols can be implemented in existing hospital IT infrastructures with nominal added investment and effort. The systems are highly scalable, supporting SDC-capable devices from a range of manufacturers.
Service-oriented Device Connectivity: A milestone for Improving Acute Care
Sharing more data amongst point-of-care devices and hospital systems is a technological achievement. Putting the shared data to use is a breakthrough in the delivery of care.
