Abstract This paper briefly reviews and compares five medical information exchange standards: the HL-7 standard, the American Society of Testing and Materials Medical standard E1238, the Medical Information Bus standard IEEE P1157, and the American College of Radiology and National Electrical Manufacturer's Association (ACR-NEMA) standard. Each standard has its primary goal stated, and its relationship to networking protocols explored. Our conclusion is that standards that are most proliferating [sic], will be the ones which utilize a practical networking approach. These standards will focus their standardization efforts outside the communication network solution space (i.e., with minimal definition of protocol layers).
