Mobile medical devices move from place to place as independent actors, raising a series of security and identification issues when they need to be disconnected and reconnected using traditional tethered cables. Wireless health provides the promise of a mobile and connected care coordination for patients but the lack of standards and misuse of current consumer grade standards has made integration a complex and ad hoc solution at best.
