Obtaining data from medical monitors via bluetooth

I am working on a very simple FM Go based anesthesia EMR.  When talking to to anesthetists, one of the very first things they ask is, "can I get the data from my monitors to go automatically into the iPad?"  This is of course to allow them to focus on the patient rather than data entry.


I know that many of these physiologic monitor manufacturers are using bluetooth radios to transmit the data, often to smart phones.  What I would like is to figure out how to get the data into my solution.


I put a request in to Welch Allyn (company that makes anesthesia and vital signs monitors) for the SDK for their monitors.


If anyone has any experience with this, I would love to hear about it.
