IHE Profiles describe specific solutions to interoperability problems. Profiles specify how "Actors" use standards to address a specific healthcare use case.
Each domain defines and publishes profiles to address interoperability issues related to its clinical and operational scope.
For ease of reference, each Profile is given a full name and a short acronym. Referencing IHE Profiles gives implementers and users a common language for solutions backed by detailed specifications to ensure interoperability.
The list of Profiles below is organized by the IHE Domain that produces them. The list of IHE Profiles can also be viewed:
- By Standard: CDA, DICOM, DICOMweb, FHIR, FHIR-Doc, HL7v2, HL7v3, RFD, XDW
