PISCATAWAY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fourth paragraph of release should read: The IEEE 11073-10417 standard, in conjunction with IEEE 11073-10425™ and IEEE 11073-10419™, enables a toolbox for supporting diabetes patients and establishes a solid foundation for accelerating research in the domain of artificial pancreas development (instead of The IEEE-10417-2015 standard, in conjunction with IEEE 11073-10425™ and IEEE 11073-10419™...).
The corrected release reads:
IEEE APPROVES STANDARD REVISION TO ENABLE OPEN COMMUNICATION AND INTEROPERABILITY FOR GLUCOSE METERING DEVICES
IEEE 11073-10417™-2015 defines a common core of communication functionality for personal glucose meters
IEEE, the world's largest professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, announced today that the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) has approved IEEE 11073-10417™-2015, an openly-defined, independent standard for controlling information exchange to and from personal health devices and information management devices such as cell phones, computers, and personal healthcare appliances. Leveraging ISO/IEEE 11073 terminology, information models, and exchange protocols, IEEE 11073-10417-2015 specifies term codes, formats, and behaviors in personal telehealth environments to enable plug-and-play interoperability between glucose metering devices and gateway devices, which are often supplied by different vendors.
According to a report by iData Research, the U.S. market for patient monitoring technology is expected to grow to more than $5.1 billion by 2020. IEEE 11073-10417 addresses the need for stakeholders to leverage the open, non-proprietary flow of information to streamline communication, enable interoperability, and advance the development and manufacture of products supporting this rapidly growing market.
“In a world that is increasingly connected, and where telehealth expansion has become a driving force in standards development, there is clear benefit for device manufacturers to adopt an open standard whereby they assure their products will continue to interplay in an evolving, vast, and varied market,” said Daidi Zhong, chair, IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society. “IEEE 11073-10417-2015 is supportive to a broad group of stakeholders and offers an open solution that ensures devices maintain functionality in the telehealth ecosystem, while also opening the door for further product development based on interoperability.”
The IEEE 11073-10417 standard, in conjunction with IEEE 11073-10425™ and IEEE 11073-10419™, enables a toolbox for supporting diabetes patients and establishes a solid foundation for accelerating research in the domain of artificial pancreas development.
The IEEE 11073-10417-2015 standard is now available for purchase at the IEEE Standards Store.
IEEE-SA will exhibit in Booth #11 of the Mico – Milan Conference Center during the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society’s (EMBC) 37th Annual International Conference 25-29 August 2015 in Milan, Italy. IEEE-SA will also be conducting two pre-symposium training seminars at the event: IEEE 1708TM Cuffless Blood Pressure standard training and IEEE 3333.2.1TM Three-Dimensional Medical Modelling standard training.
