The Cardiology Technical Committee performs the technical work of the IHE Cardiology Domain. It works under the direction of the Cardiology Planning Committee.

Current Activities

Cardiology Change Proposals

The TF Maintenance Folder holds:

  • the Cardiology CP Tracking spreadsheet which lists all CPs, their current status and assigned editors
  • copies of all CPs grouped by current status

Important: CPs should only be edited and renamed by their assigned editor. CPs should only be moved between folders by the CP Coordinator.

The Change Proposal Process describes the steps for submitting and managing Change Proposals. In addition to the standard naming, IHE Cardiology uses RJ when a CP has been rejected (e.g. CP-CARD-098-RJ.doc), CA when a CP has been cancelled, and CM when a CP is completed and ready for ballot.

CP Ballots and Comments may be submitted to ihe-cardio-tech. Please note that only ballots from Member Organizations with active voting privileges will be counted.

Cardiology Technical Framework Editorial Maintenance

The TF Section Number Assignments spreadsheet tracks the main profile chapter numbers (in Volume 1) and the transaction numbering (including Volume 2 and 3 section numbering).

Cardiology Profile Supplement Development: 2011

Current Works-in-progress versions:

Cardiology Report Content

CDA Implementation Guide (IHE Content Profile) for cardiac imaging reports based on ACC Key Data Elements.

White Paper Development

The following white papers are under development and planned to be published for Comment sometime in 2011.

3D/4D Echo Workflow Whitepaper

The goal is to define clinical use case on storage and display of 3D Echocardiograms. This includes coordination with DICOM working groups to develop presentations states.

Cardiac EP Key Data Elements Whitepaper

The definition and publication of Cardiac Electrophysiology Key Data Elements for Electronic Submission and Cross-System Pre-Population offers the capability to leverage health industry standards that address both the structure and content of data used in the cardiac electrophysiology domain.
