The international IEEE experts in the field of point-of-care medical device interoperability met from May 6th to May 10th 2019 in Montréal, Canada, in conjunction with the HL7 International Conference & Working Group Meeting. Anton Keller (Aesculap), Martin Kasparick (University of Rostock) and Stefan Schlichting (Dräger, associated partner) represented the PoCSpec project, supported by additional project partners attending via web conference. Our team presented the current project progress on Device Specialisations for IEEE 11073 Service-oriented Device Connectivity (SDC) based networked surgical devices and received very positive feedback
The second PoCSpec project meeting on 26 and 27 February 2019 at the KARL STORZ Visitor Center in Tuttlingen aimed to promote a common knowledge of all project participants. Tutorials and practical “hands-on” exercises on endoscopy, HF surgery and IEEE 11073 SDC provided the basis for an intensive exchange between the 25 participants.
The project “PoCSpec – Modular Specializations for Point of Care Medical Devices” has started with a two-day kick-off meeting at the OFFIS Institute for Information Technology on 9 and 10 January 2019.
