This study proposes a new two-in-one medical monitoring system that lets medical devices transmit vital sign data to an application host device on a network. The medical monitoring system is based on international standards, providing an interoperable platform. On this platform, personal healthcare systems use a Bluetooth Health Device Profile interface to exchange measurement data that's compliant with the data exchange protocol ISO/IEEE 11073-20601 and with the data device specifications of the ISO/IEEE 11073-104zz series of standards. The medical monitoring system is the first dual-meter device providing both blood glucose and blood pressure measurements certified by Continua Health Alliance, an international organization. This medical monitoring system meets conformance requirements as well as basic interoperability requirements with other Continua certified devices. Using the system, users can measure their vital signs, blood pressure, and blood glucose and transmit the data to any Continua application host device without an interoperability problem.
