The IT Infrastructure Domain supplies infrastructure for sharing healthcare information. An infrastructure interoperability component represents a common IT function that is used as a building block for a variety of use cases... a necessary ingredient, but rarely visible to the end user!! These components may be embedded in an application, but are often deployed as a shared resource within a Health Information Exchange.
This domain began in 2003, is sponsored by Health Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS). The ITI domain Profiles are fully described in the IT Infrastructure Technical Framework.
