Strategic planning

The IHE Pharmacy domain undergoes constant strategic planning to evaluate its vision, mission and strategic goals.

See the strategic planning activities of the IHE Pharmacy domain here.


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
