This document describes the use of IEEE 11073 Service-oriented Device Connectivity (SDC) device-to-device interoperability technology that is optimised for high-acuity environments (such as operating rooms, intensive care units, or emergency departments). It explores how this technology can be integrated into IHE Technical Framework components. The document proposes a roadmap and timeline leading from IHE SDPi Profile specifications to IHE connectathon testing and, ultimately, IHE conformity assessment and product certification.
