To obtain effective data from a medical instrument, instrument calibration, an important process within the laboratory activities, is required. Many mobile medical devices are widely and routinely utilized for monitoring people's physiological data by home-care users. However, it is necessary to let these test data be as effective as laboratory reports, so physicians can recognize as well as refer to them. The chapter proposes a Medical Instrument Calibration (MIC) process to let all connected instruments share and store their current calibration information in a global MIC's Database (MICDB). The MICDB is based on the ISO 15189:2012 standard and provides cloud-based functions via Web Services. It also shares collaborated information that is provided by other medical instruments and vendors. A MIC process for calibrating the instrument is not only required for the laboratory, but it can also be adapted for mobile medical devices and home-care instruments.
