8.16 Resource DeviceMetric - Content

Health Care Devices Work GroupMaturity Level: 1 Trial UseCompartments: Device

Describes a measurement, calculation or setting capability of a medical device.

The DeviceMetric resource describes mandatory static properties that characterize a direct or derived, quantitative or qualitative biosignal measurement, setting, or calculation produced by a medical device. The DeviceMetric resource can also be used to describe the non-static but highly relevant properties to the metric such as metric status, metric last calibration time and type, measurement mode, color, reference link to the parent DeviceComponent to where it belongs, and any capabilities that the metric offers (for example: setting the metric label).

Note:

For the initial scope, this DeviceMetric resource is only applicable to describe a single metric 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.

There are two related resources

  • Device - The physical device that this DeviceMetric belongs to.
  • DeviceComponent - The DeviceComponent that this DeviceMetric is part of. This can be a DeviceComponent of any kind like a VirtualMedicalDevice, a MedicalDeviceSystem, or a Channel.

This resource is referenced by Media and Observation

DeviceMetric (DomainResource)Unique instance identifiers assigned to a device by the device or gateway software, manufacturers, other organizations or owners. For example: handle IDidentifier : Identifier [0..*]Describes the type of the metric. For example: Heart Rate, PEEP Setting, etctype : CodeableConcept [1..1] « Describes the metric type. (Strength=Preferred)Device Metric and Component T...? »Describes the unit that an observed value determined for this metric will have. For example: Percent, Seconds, etcunit : CodeableConcept [0..1] « Describes the unit of the metric. (Strength=Preferred)Device Metric and Component T...? »Describes the link to the Device that this DeviceMetric belongs to and that contains administrative device information such as manufacturer, serial number, etcsource : Reference [0..1] « Device »Describes the link to the DeviceComponent that this DeviceMetric belongs to and that provide information about the location of this DeviceMetric in the containment structure of the parent Device. An example would be a DeviceComponent that represents a Channel. This reference can be used by a client application to distinguish DeviceMetrics that have the same type, but should be interpreted based on their containment locationparent : Reference [0..1] « DeviceComponent »Indicates current operational state of the device. For example: On, Off, Standby, etcoperationalStatus : code [0..1] « Describes the operational status of the DeviceMetric. (Strength=Required)DeviceMetricOperationalStatus! »Describes the color representation for the metric. This is often used to aid clinicians to track and identify parameter types by color. In practice, consider a Patient Monitor that has ECG/HR and Pleth for example; the parameters are displayed in different characteristic colors, such as HR-blue, BP-green, and PR and SpO2- magentacolor : code [0..1] « Describes the typical color of representation. (Strength=Required)DeviceMetricColor! »Indicates the category of the observation generation process. A DeviceMetric can be for example a setting, measurement, or calculationcategory : code [1..1] « Describes the category of the metric. (Strength=Required)DeviceMetricCategory! »Describes the measurement repetition time. This is not necessarily the same as the update period. The measurement repetition time can range from milliseconds up to hours. An example for a measurement repetition time in the range of milliseconds is the sampling rate of an ECG. An example for a measurement repetition time in the range of hours is a NIBP that is triggered automatically every hour. The update period may be different than the measurement repetition time, if the device does not update the published observed value with the same frequency as it was measuredmeasurementPeriod : Timing [0..1]CalibrationDescribes the type of the calibration methodtype : code [0..1] « Describes the type of a metric calibration.
