IHE Integration Profiles describe a specific integration problem, and document the equipment roles, standards and design details for vendors to implement products that cooperate to address that problem. Integration Profiles offer a convenient way for vendors and users to reference the functionality defined in the IHE Technical Framework without having to restate all of the detail regarding IHE actors and transactions. For convenient reference, each Profile has a short acronym.
Each domain manages a collection of Profiles.
