From HL7Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search


Profile Details

Parent Resource

Constraints to be Applied

  • performer = Resource(Device)
  • subject = Resource(Device| Patient)
  • method = Measure mode ValueSet
  • applied[x] = DateTime
  • Remove encounter

Extensions to be Applied

  • relatedDeviceMetric = Resource(Patient) [1..1]

Example Scenarios

  • An observation of diastolic blood pressure indicates 60 mmHg.
  • An observation of systolic blood pressure indicates 111 mmHg.
  • A ventilation mode setting value from a ventilator.

Scope of coverage

The DeviceMetricObservation profile describes the direct or derived, qualitative or quantitative physiological measurement, setting, or calculation data produced by a medical device or a device component.


For the initial scope, this DeviceMetricObservation profile is only applicable to describe a measurement that is produced by any medical device that implements or derives from the ISO/IEEE 11073 standard.


Owning committee name

Health Care Devices (DEV) WG

Contributing or Reviewing Work Groups

Health Care Devices (DEV) WG

Expected implementations

  • Center for Medical Interoperability will be in collaboration with Dräger Medical to work on the profile definition for DeviceMetricObservation.
  • Other Enterprise systems (such as EHR, PHR, or EMR) might be interested in consuming DeviceMetricObservation data for their data analytic module.
