- Paul
  • Paul summarized Friday’s HITSP RMON conference call.
  • Continua representatives on the call indicated they felt that use cases were not adequately represented in earlier RMON discussions.
  • Paul expressed concern that while this draft supports simple devices, such as a scale and thermometer, it won’t support more complex devices used at home or in other use case facilities, such as a ventilator.
  • There will be a call tomorrow (Thursday) with some Continua members and HITSP representatives to discuss this interface.
  • Paul suggested that this issue would best be addressed in a F2F meeting. Todd indicated that a core issue is the interpretation of the scope of the HITSP use case, and that will determine data streams Interface #2 needs to support. Paul noted that Continua has focused on Interface #1 and has not addressed Interface #2.
