What is IHE?
"Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise" (IHE) fills the "gap" between the creation of e-Health standards and their implementation. IHE is not "Yet Another Standard" but is the missing link between standards development and compliant implementations. IHE supports vendors and implementers in effectively building compliant healthcare computing systems and interfaces based on global standards such as HL7 and DICOM.
IHE develops and maintains the IHE "profiles" which provide precise implementation specifications, based on established international standards, for specific health IT interoperability needs. These profiles provide guidance that details required actions for health IT systems with many different functions to acquire, manage and communicate vital medical information effectively, while supporting efficient provider workflows and protecting private health information.
