This standard addresses a need for an openly defined, independent standard for controlling information exchange to and from personal health devices and managers (e.g., cell phones, personal computers, personal health appliances, set top boxes). Interoperability is key to growing the potential market for these devices and enabling people to be better informed participants in the management of their health.So far, we have four items on the list of change request for 11073-10420-2010: 1) The Medical Device Communications (MDC) nomenclature code MDC_LEN_BODY_ACTUAL is missing in Annex C 2) The Medical Device Communications (MDC) nomenclature code MDC_MASS_BODY_ACTUAL is missing in Annex C 3) The Medical Device Communications (MDC) nomenclature code MDC_RATIO_MASS_BODY_LEN_SQ is missing in Annex C 4) The Medical Device Communications (MDC) nomenclature code MDC_DIM_KILO_G is missing in Annex C Above four items are the scope of this proposed change, but we don't preclude any further change request pop up during the developing process of this Corrigendum unless it requires a significant change to the technical content of the original 11073-10420-2008 standard.
