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.

IHE Australia Mission Statement
IHE Australia is an open not-for-profit initiative that supports the interoperability needs of e-Health Standards users in Australia. IHE Australia is the official local deployment group of IHE International. IHE International is endorsed by over 230 professional and Standards organisations, healthcare providers and vendors world-wide. IHE Australia has local responsibility for the promotion and education of the IHE approach, the evaluation, localisation and creation of Integration Specifications ("Profiles") and the running of local conformance testing events ("Connectathons") according to the IHE International guidelines, ISO 28380 TR and Australian best practice. IHE derives its Profiles from existing global and local standards, but is not a Standards Development Organisation.
