This paper explores the need for interoperability for point of care devices in healthcare ecosystem and possible approach for implementation. POCT1-A2 is the approved standard for interoperability of Point of Care Testing devices. This paper suggests a systematic approach for implementing POCT1-A2 and discusses a framework-based solution for standardizing the implementation across devices for ease of maintenance and higher ROI.
This paper talks about the requirements of building a communication framework that brings together multifarious medical devices on a unified platform. It also presents the possible ramifications and business benefits that such a unified framework would have for the entire healthcare ecosystem.
