Mobile Health Standards & Interoperability

Isolated IT environments have been the historical norm among clinical practices and hospital settings. Those days are quickly disappearing in the clinical environment. Mobile platforms are being rapidly adopted and have the ability to communicate with traditional devices such as stethoscopes and blood pressure cuffs as an integrated part of the IT environment. To properly support this communication, mobile devices must support standards for information exchange which serve as the building blocks for the seamless and secure exchange of health information.

The standards section is the source for all things DICOM, LOINC, IEEE, SNOWMED CT, etc. related to mobile and wireless use, including some standards you may never have considered.
