Mission Statement

Brief statement of the clinical or operational domain and set of issues the domain addresses.


The Devices Domain (DEV) was created in 2019 as an expansion of the original Patient Care Device Domain. Along with regulated Patient Care Device, DEV now includes Personal Connected Health (PCH) and the Device Point-of-Care Interoperability (DPi). These three groups are mostly autonomous sub-domains with the Devices Domain.

DEV Subdomains

DEV consists of three sub-domains addressing different clinical needs and use models. For further information on each, please go to the relevant wiki page:

Patient Care Device (PCD) - PCD Wiki page
Personal Connected Health (PCH) - PCH Wiki page
Device Point of Care Interoperability - DPi Wiki Page


Each Sub-Domain has its own sponsors.

For Patient Care Device (PCD), the sponsors are:

For Personal Connected Health (PCH), the sponsor is:

For Device Point-of-Care Interoperability (DPi), the sponsor is:


The Devices Guidance Committee is responsible for providing for consistent processes only where practical across subdomains and promoting effective communication and coordination among them. Participating in this committee is one of the duties of the Co-Chairs of IHE Devices subdomain committees. A key objective of the Devices Guidance Committee is to allow maximum autonomy of operations for each subdomain, encouraging coordination at the domain level only as necessary to ensure compliance with the IHE Principles of Governance or to clearly benefit from economies of scale.

The Devices Guidance Committee consists of representatives from each Sub-Domain’s Planning and Technical Committees.

Additionally, each Sub-Domain has it’s own Planning and Technical Committees

Additionally, each Sub-Domain may have workgroups or task forces for specialty applications/implementations within their area.
