Common Alerting Protocol

Health IT systems and medical devices should learn about CAP

However, if the software we write gets smarter about diseases and clinical decision making we could use something like CAP to help inform CDC and FDA for hazards, infections, etc. Medical device manufacturers could use CAP to report adverse events to their own internal IT systems and CAP gateways could help route important messages outside the hospital.

XML was supposed to be so easy.
