This paper describes an XML framework for the exchange of data between medical devices and software systems. XML technologies offer an extensible data format, which is easy to both create and process and simplifies the exchange of data. Different XML standards are defined within the framework in order to provide a practical solution for both device manufacturers and software developers. The structure and benefits of XML documents are discussed and an XML framework for ophthalmology is described.
