IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society/Standards Committee (EMB/Stds Com)
Why get involved:
Mobile apps and sensors are an increasingly valuable source of health-related data. Standardization of mobile health data and metadata will make data aggregation across multiple mobile health sources easier and more accurate, and will reduce the costs of using mobile health data to make biomedical discoveries and to improve health and manage disease.
This standard will define specifications for a mobile health data application programming interface (API) and standardized representations for mobile health data and metadata. Mobile health data encompasses personal health data collected from sensors and mobile applications. No mobile health data or metadata standards currently exist.
Who should participate:
- Wearable device makers
- Medical device makers
- Health data aggregators
- Health information technology systems managers
- Health information infrastructure providers
- Mobile health app developers
- Biomedical researchers
- Data scientists
