IHE Pharmacy Domain Committees
There are two committees :
Supplements for Trial Implementation
The IHE Pharmacy Technical Committee invites organizations to begin development work based on the following supplements to the forthcoming Pharmacy Technical Framework.
These trial implementation profiles are available for testing at IHE Connectathons since April 2011.
All the up-to-dated informations on the profiles are available on the ihe.net website @ http://ihe.net/Technical_Frameworks/#pharmacy
Comments and implementer feedback on all documents can be submitted to the Pharmacy (PHARM) Public Comment Form.
The IHE Pharmacy domain undergoes constant strategic planning to evaluate its vision, mission and strategic goals.
Given the charter of the PHARM domain, many years or "cycles" of work will be required to address the device integration needs that have been identified.
The Planning Committee has created and maintains a road map for when the group will address various areas. This document outlines goals and plans over the next 5-10 years and shall support fulfilling the strategic goals of the committee.
Please see the current document at: Roadmap
See past roadmaps here: Past roadmaps
