General Implementation Guidance is provided on this page for people trying to implement software/systems that support IHE Profiles.
Profile implementation guidance is also available for some specific Profiles.
Deployment Project Summaries outline several real-world IHE implementation/deployment projects.

IHE has developed a growing body of software tools to facilitate testing and implementation of IHE Integration Profiles in healthcare information technology systems. These tools are available for download and licensed by their developers for free use. The links below point to sources with further information and direct access to download the tools.
MESA is the main body of the current generation of IHE Test Tools developed at the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology (MIR) at Washington University in St. Louis.
Version 11.11.0 is the public release of the software created by MIR to support testing during the 2007-2008 annual cycle.
NIST has developed a set of tools, focusing mainly on Cross-enterprise Document Sharing (XDS) and related Integration Profiles.
The École de technologie supérieure has developed a set of tools focusing on the Cross-enterprise Document Sharing for Imaging (XDS-I) and Patient Identity Cross-reference (PIXv3) and Patient Demographic Query (PDQv3) HL7 version 3 profiles.
Mailing Lists exist for all IHE Domains, most IHE Regions and most implementation projects (such as IHE Connectathons and IHE Demonstrations).
The NIST IHE Wiki is particularly useful to those implementing IHE Profiles from the IHE IT Infrastucture Domain.
OHF-dev is a mailing list with useful discussions for IHE developers.
