The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) announced today that it will be exhibiting at the HIMSS 2013 Annual Conference & Exhibition in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, 3-7 March 2013. IEEE-SA will feature the importance of enabling personal health-device communications by demonstrating medical devices powered by the IEEE 11073™ family of standards, including blood pressure monitors, glucose meters, weight scales and more.

The IEEE-SA will be exhibiting in Booth 8 in Lobby G (Collaborators Section) of the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

WHAT:
At the 2013 HIMSS Annual Conference & Exhibition in Booth 8, the IEEE-SA will demonstrate how it is enabling personal health-device communications through consensus building by showcasing standards-development projects based on the IEEE 11073 family of standards. These standards aim to help patients enjoy more active and independent daily lives, support “on-the-go” mobile clinicians and caregivers and contribute to the elimination of gaps, waste and errors across the spectrum of healthcare delivery.

WHEN:
HIMSS Conference & Exhibition: 3-7 March 2013
IEEE 11073 demonstrations: 5-6 March 2013, 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. and 7 March 2013, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

WHERE:
Booth 8, Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, Lobby G (Collaborators Section)

WHY:
As a result of enabling personal health-device communications through consensus building, the IEEE-SA supports advancing technology for humanity, helping to improve quality of life, driving innovation, helping to create global markets and protecting health and safety.

IEEE 11073 standards are designed to help healthcare product vendors and integrators create devices and systems for disease management, health and fitness and independent living that can help save lives and improve quality of life for people worldwide. The growing IEEE 11073 family of standards is intended to support interoperable communications for personal health devices and convey far-ranging potential benefits, such as reducing clinical decision-making from days to minutes, reducing gaps and errors across the spectrum of healthcare delivery and helping to expand the potential market for the medical devices themselves.
