Live Webinar: Standards based medical device Interoperability for high acuity areas - November 30, 2021

The pandemic has clearly revealed how digitisation could help caregivers in hospitals to deliver better and more efficient patient care. Emerging industry standards such as ISO/IEEE 11073-SDC are a key enabler for the advancement of medical technologies and care processes.

In this 90-minute webinar, you will learn how standards-based interoperability of medical devices will drive digitisation in hospitals and make an important contribution to improving acute care. Industry Experts will discuss the new SDC standard, how it relates other standards such as HL7 and FHIR and which initiatives are already being taken to implement this standard in medical devices.

Format: Live Webinar
Date: Tuesday, November 30th, 2021
Time: 04:00 PM - 05:30 PM (CET)
