Goal: Improve patient safety by making disparate systems interoperable so that clinicians can see all of the patient's pulse oximetry readings.

Problem: The ability of exchanging pulse oximetry with enterprise information systems using the standards and terminology that are native to those system would constitute a great advantage to the provider who use those devices and accelerate the integration with enterprise systems where the documentation for medical services is completed.

Solution: Identify a way to automatically capture these values as well as record interventions with these readings. Ideally, there should be real‐time feedback to the staff to be alerted to values outside the acceptable ranges for intervention. Also, there should be some way to validate the readings and annotate issues affecting the reading for final placement in the EHR.

Benefit: This will allow clinicians to make better informed decisions about the patient's treatment plan. Additionally, a comprehensive list of values can provide researchers a wide variety of data, which can lead to best practices
