This standard is needed to provide plug-and-play interoperability for applications that require remote control of medical devices. It supports a single, consistent service model that supports reliable control applications, including both open and closed loop.This standard extends the capabilities of the IEEE 11073 family standards to provide an optional service for remote control of medical devices. It builds upon the capabilities provided by other application profile standards, namely IEEE 11073-20201 Application Profile - Baseline asynchronous mode, to enable the discovery, configuration, invocation, and monitoring of remote control services. It also leverages objects defined in the IEEE 11073-10201 Domain Information Model and terminology defined in the IEEE 11073-10101 Nomenclature standard. Both open and closed loop applications are supported. "Remote" includes both device-external but physically local control, as well as control of geographically distant devices. Specific device control semantics (e.g., for a ventilator) are not included in this standard.
