Integration of IEEE 1451 and HL7 exchanging information for patients' sensor data.

Kim W, Lim S, Ahn J, Nah J, Kim N - J Med Syst (2009)

Bottom Line: However, the HL7 standard does not support effective methods for treating data from various medical sensors, especially from mobile sensors.As ubiquitous systems are growing, HL7 must communicate with various medical transducers.After we present a method to integrate them and show the preliminary results of this approach.

ABSTRACT
HL7 (Health Level 7) is a standard developed for exchanging incompatible healthcare information generated from programs or devices among heterogenous medical information systems. At present, HL7 is growing as a global standard. However, the HL7 standard does not support effective methods for treating data from various medical sensors, especially from mobile sensors. As ubiquitous systems are growing, HL7 must communicate with various medical transducers. In the area of sensor fields, IEEE 1451 is a group of standards for controlling transducers and for communicating data from/to various transducers. In this paper, we present the possibility of interoperability between the two standards, i.e., HL7 and IEEE 1451. After we present a method to integrate them and show the preliminary results of this approach.

Mentions: In Fig. 4, we extracted the components that are related with the transfer of medical data from Fig. 3. Since we assumed that all the sensors are implemented to meet the specification of the IEEE 1451 standard, the sensors carry TEDS. In the TEDS, all the information on the patient, smart sensors are stored and sent with the sensor data. The data which are collected and transmitted to the PDA, are transmitted to the NCAP (Network capable application processor) and eventually to the Hospital. In the NCAP and the hospital, they have transcoders or transformers between IEEE 1451 TEDS and HL7.Fig. 4
