Nowadays, the large-scale deployment of electronic health record systems and eHealth services has to face with a real multi-vendor environment. Even if each manufacturer supports an existing standard for communication and storage of ECG data, the large number of co-existing ECG standards is a major problem. In this direction, an online service operating as a gateway between SCP-ECG, the European standard for communication and storage of resting ECGs, and the DICOM waveform standard (Supplement 30), a common format for the communication of time series data including vital signs and ECGs, has been developed. The open availability of this service in the OpenECG portal is expected to facilitate digital ECG interoperability and contribute to the harmonization of ECG standards.
