Continuous technological innovations are bringing new opportunities to healthcare applications. Although these improvements apply to most of its different fields, outstanding results are being achieved in medical devices interoperability, oriented to ubiquitous solutions including wearable devices, focused to the new paradigm of personal health (p-health). These evolutions can improve the quality of the patientpsilas care, increase the userpsilas interaction and, furthermore, lead to new medical use cases based on ambient assisted living, home monitoring of elderly, heart failure, chronic, under palliative care or patients who have undergone surgery, urgencies and emergencies, or even fitness auto-control and health follow-up. Furthermore, in order to assure p-health applications to be fully compatible with larger global e-health systems in terms of terminology homogenization or plug-and-play operation, proposed solutions have to be based on interoperability. In this paper, recent innovative advances in biomedical engineering applied to standard-based telemedicine solutions are detailed.
