There are IEEE 11073 standards for foundational, structural, and semantic point-of-care medical device interoperability, but the first devices with this interface have yet to enter the market. One of the missing pieces for implementation and approval are Device Specialisations that specify how to use information and service models to represent a specific type of device on the network. Required and optional metrics need to be standardised as well as nomenclature terms, units of measure, and
