Cross Enterprise Document Sharing (XDS) Course
IHE's "Cross-Enterprise Document Sharing" ("XDS") allows distribution and access of clinical documents across different care settings in healthcare enterprises. This can be the first step towards the longitudinal Electronic Health Record (EHR).
XDS is an industry-developed architecture which is extensible to support both point-to-point exchange as well as shared documents which "follow" the patient through different care settings.
XDS uses a registry/repository approach for accessing clinical documents, rather than a centralised EHR model. It easily supports distributed and organically grown healthcare systems.
XDS is rapidly gaining interest around the world with some of the US Regional Health Information Organisation ("RHIO"s) deploying XDS in their system architectures. XDS is being implemented for radiology image sharing across Canada and there are several early implementations in Europe. A substantial number of vendors are "XDS-ready" and have tested their products in US and European IHE "Connectathons". XDS uses a number of communications and data standards. It fully incorporates HL7 CDA which was endorsed by NEHTA in 2007.
We are pleased to be able to offer an intensive XDS Course delivered by Chris Lindop, a distinguished IHE expert and Interoperability Program Manager at GE Healthcare from the USA. The Course will provide an in-depth understanding of XDS, its structure and capabilities.
