Within the context of the ISO/IEEE 11073 framework of standards, this work group's focus is on standards that address transport-independent application and information profiles between personal telehealth devices and monitors / managers (e.g. health appliance, set top box, cell phone, personal computer). Existing ISO/IEEE 11073 standards are evaluated and then used, modified, or new standards defined as needed. In this context personal telehealth devices can be described as devices used for life activity, wellness monitoring, and/or health monitoring in domestic home, communal home, and/or mobile applications. Application and information profiles consist of exchange format, data representation, and terminology for such personal telehealth devices. Anticipated work products include: 1) a technical report describing personal telehealth device data, 2) a common, transport independent application profile for information exchange between personal telehealth devices and monitors / managers, and 3) device specialization standards.
