The characteristics, operational status and capabilities of a medical-related component of a medical device.

The DeviceComponent resource is used to describe the characteristics, operational status and capabilities of a medical-related component of a medical device. It can be a physical component that is integrated inside the device, a removable physical component, or a non-physical component that allows physiological measurement data and its derived data to be grouped in a hierarchical information organization.

Note:

For the initial scope, this DeviceComponent resource is only applicable to describe a single node in the containment tree that is produced by the context scanner in any medical device that implements or derives from the ISO/IEEE 11073 standard and that does not represent a metric. Examples for such a node are MDS, VMD, or Channel.

The DeviceComponent allows us to change the configuration of the device without having to change the device resource instance. The life-cycle of the configuration may be completely different than the one of the device itself.

There are several related resources

A Context Scanner object of a medical device that implements or derives from ISO/IEEE 11073 standard is responsible for observing device configuration changes. After instantiation, the Context Scanner object is responsible for announcing the object instances in the device's MDIB, a hierarchical containment (MDS->VMD->Channel->Metric). The DeviceComponent resource can be used to describe the characteristics, operational status and capabilities of a medical-related component of a medical device. It can be a physical component that is integrated inside the device, a removable physical component, or a non-physical component that allows physiological measurement data and its derived data to be grouped in a hierarchical information organization. Devices are conceptualized using the following main structure:

  1. MedicalDeviceSystem - An actual device that external systems communicate with. In 11073, this is known as a MDS.
  2. VirtualMedicalDevice - A medical-related subsystem of a medical device. It can either be a physical hardware piece or a pure software plugin component of a medical device. In 11073, this is known as a VMD.
  3. Channel - A non-physical component that allows physiological measurement data and its derived data to be grouped in a hierarchical information organization.

Very simple devices may have only a single virtual device with a single channel and one metric, while complex devices may have multiple items at every level.

This resource is referenced by DeviceMetric and Observation
