About IHE Australia
IHE is an initiative by healthcare professionals and industry to improve the way computer systems in healthcare share information
Systems that support IHE Integration Profiles work together better, are easier to implement, and help care providers use information more effectively. The goal is efficient delivery of optimal patient care. Several hundred health information system products support one or more IHE Profiles.
These profiles fill the "gap" between the creation of e-Health standards and their implementation. IHE is not "just another standard", it is the "missing link" between standards development and compliant implementations which improve healthcare delivery for patients. IHE supports vendors and implementers build compliant healthcare computing systems and interfaces based on global standards such as HL7 and DICOM. IHE "profiles" 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 . ... more
