MediCANTM represents a network architecture that was designed as a vendor-independent technology for interfacing bedside medical instrumentation. It is compatible with almost all medical instrument technologies and data communications protocols. In contrast to IEEE X73, MediCANTM sought to integrate the most suitable off-the-shelf technologies that were already proven and up-to-date with cost-effective availability. MediCANTM is highly scalable in regards to interfacing with instruments on the lowest end of complexity level (i.e., thermometer) to pulse oximeter or higher complexity. In addition, a simple interface is going to connect a fiber-optic sensor to provide heart and body motion data for continuous monitoring of patients. MediCANTM has been designed to utilize internet tools to track operations related to healthcare administration to decrease costs.
