IEEE 11073-10441
Released March 2013

The “Standard for Health Informatics—Personal Health Device Communication Part 10441: Device Specialization—Cardiovascular Fitness and Activity Monitor” supports interoperable communications among devices that measure both a person’s activity and physiological responses, and compute engines, such as cellphones, computers, and set-top boxes.

ISO/IEEE 11073-10417
Released January 2012

The “Standard for Health Informatics—Personal Health Device Communication—Part 10417: Device Specialization—Glucose Meter” supports plug-and-play interoperability between personal glucose meters and compute engines.

ISO/IEEE 11073-10407
Released May 2010

The “ISO/IEEE Standard for Health Informatics—Personal Health Device Communication—Part 10407: Device Specialization—Blood Pressure Monitor” defines communications between personal telehealth blood pressure monitors and compute engines in a manner that enables plug-and-play interoperability.

The following standard is under development. If approved by the IEEE-SA Standards Board, it will be added to the IEEE 11073 family.

IEEE P11073-10419
The “Draft Standard for Health Informatics—Personal Health Device Communication—Device Specialization—Insulin Pump” specifies the possibilities of information exchange between interoperable insulin pumps and compute engines.
