Understanding the Redox Device Data Model

When do I need to use the Device data model?

The Redox Device data model is used to transmit discrete device data to an EHR. The device data model is useful for workflows where an EHR is distributing the device to the patient and so can already match the device ID to the patient record; the application sending the device data back to the chart only needs to include the device identifier.

How is the Redox Device data model different from the Flowsheets model?

The Redox Flowsheets and Device models are almost identical save for one key difference: the Device model requires a device identifier to match the results with the patient’s chart while the Flowsheets model (and almost every other Redox data model) requires a patient identifier.
