Eight standards on Internet of Things for medical care and health developed by Feng Hailing, Zhong Daidi, Cao Xiaoying and Tang Yi from the School of Bio-engineering of Chongqing University in collaboration with UTECH Medical Inc. have been officially released at the Smart and Healthy Development Summit of 2018 World Internet of Things Exposition. In particular, the Internet of Things for medical care and Health: Designation Table for Sensing Device Communication Data: Part 4 - Oximeter, developed under the lead of Feng Hailing (standard No.: T/CHIA 14.4—2018). This standard has been proposed by Wuxi Research Institute of Internet of Things for medical care, the Statistics Information Center of the National Health and Family Planning Commission, and managed by the Chinese Health Information and Big Data Association, and is the first one of its kind in the Internet of Things for medical care and health area in China. This is also the first time that Chongqing University has participated in the preparation of standards as led by the National Health and Family Planning Commission.
Medical care and health have always been a focus of application of the Internet of Things, and are closely related to medical and health service industry, information technology industry and medical device industry. The Internet of Things for medical care and health involves communication of enormous medical care and health data between devices or systems, and needs to incorporate electronic medical record and health record with patients as the core. It aims at new-type medical care and health services centering on human beings. It includes unified designation, numbering and formatting of the only identity label of human body, station location marker, various physiological parameters and time and related sensing devices, and is used for data collection with sensing devices as the focus and standardized information integration and application. The standard is currently the only one of its kind in China and in this area, and will be used as one of the basic standards to provide technical support for data exchange protocols in the medical care and health area, and regulate the industrialization development of the Internet of Things for medical care and health.
