In the last two weeks PoCSpec was on the “big stage”: From 25 – 28.05.2021 the joint international meeting of HL7 and the IEEE 11073 Point-of-Care Devices working group was on the agenda. We presented the current status of our draft standards and discussed it with the experts from all over the world. On June 01 and 02, 2021, the focus was on implementations. At the third SDC/SDPi Plug-a-thon of IHE Deutschland e.V., the interoperability of the available software libraries was tested and further improved. These libraries are currently being used for prototype implementations, such as our Device Specializations. Implementations of the first market-ready devices were also involved.
