OBJECTIVE: We developed a biosignal telemonitoring system which is based on HL7 and MFER standard.

METHODS: For the communication of waveform data (ECG, EEG etc.) we adopted MFER(Medical waveform description Format Encoding Rules) standard and HL7(Health Level 7). MFER is a standard for encoding waveform biosignal such as ECG, EEG and so on. HL7 is a standard for electronic data communication between two different information systems.

RESULTS: The telemornitoring system consists of an HL7 interface gateway and a central repository. The HL7 interface gateway has three modules of an MFER analyzer, an HL7 message generator, and a file sender. The central repository is a central database combined with an HL7 archiver.

CONCLUSION: Through this study we might conclude that the proposed system can be a promising model for telemonitoring system in healthcare environment.

Key Words: HL7, MFER, Biosignal, Telemonitoring System, Gatewa
