Data Model

Name Type M Description Example
id String x internal given unique identifier, for internal reference, t.b.discussed: external list of devices-separation between coded and not coded information
manufacturer String manufacturer of the device
name String Name of the device
type CodedValue X If the device is a supported telemedical device, then here are listed the types of the devices supported by application, else this is freetext string entry
observableParameters CodedValue list of parameters as parametercodes-supperted catalogs are LOINC and CGM addon catalog, which would be contained regular from the device. Internal parametername as geiven from the device has to be stored in the not catalog related string field := description


The Id and the type of device must be recorded.


For the kind of device a list of supported devices is available:
