Continua Health Alliance 2014 design guidelines – first global interoperability standards ratified by the ITU – 26 March 2014

“Continua Health Alliance today announced the availability of its most recent 2014 Design Guidelines. Continua is an international non-profit multi-stakeholder group, and the leading organization convening global technology industry standards to develop end-to-end, plug-and-play connectivity for personal connected health. The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is the United Nations specialized agency for information and communication technologies. The Design Guidelines are now available to the public as a free download from Continua and ITU.

Continua’s 2014 Design Guidelines are formatted to ITU specifications and feature: interface between personal area network (PAN), local area network (LAN) and touch area network (TAN) health devices and application hosting devices (AHDs) including NFC (near-field communication), INR (international normalized ratio) and Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) Glucose Meter; and consent enforcement via wide area network (WAN) and Health Record Network (HRN) health devices. The 2013 Guidelines were the first Guidelines approved by ITU as the global standards for interoperability for personal connected health.”

ITU H.810 Interoperability design guidelines for personal health systems

Summary
“Recommendation ITU-T H.810 defines the Continua Design Guidelines (CDG) which contain specifications to ensure the interoperability of devices used for applications monitoring personal health. It also contains additional design guidelines for interoperability that further clarifies these specifications by reducing the options in the underlying standard or specification, or by adding a feature missing in the underlying standard or specification. These guidelines focus on the following interfaces:
– TAN-IF – Interface between touch area network (TAN) health devices and application hosting devices (AHDs)
– PAN-IF – Interface between personal area network (PAN) health devices and AHDs
– LAN-IF – Interface between local area network (LAN) health devices and AHDs
– WAN-IF – Interface between AHDs and wide area network (WAN) health devices
– HRN-IF – Interface between WAN health devices and Health Record Network health devices.

This Recommendation is a transposition of the CDG developed and maintained by Continua Health Alliance.”
