Standardized Device Services - A Design Pattern for Service Oriented Integration of Medical Devices
Source: Universität Kassel
Service Oriented Device Architecture (SODA) is a promising approach for enabling a continuous IT support of medical processes in hospitals. However, there is a lack of specific design patterns for realizing the concept in an effective and efficient way. This paper addresses this research gap by introducing the Standardized Device Service design pattern, as a first fundamental pattern for encapsulating devices as services. The pattern is based on both established Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) best practices as well as latest research in the field of SODA.
