SWF.b Assisted Protocol Option Extension
This template is for one or two page IHE workitem proposals for initial review. To create a new proposal, first log in to the Wiki (or create an account if you don't already have one). Then create an appropriately named new Wiki page (see the editing instructions linked to "Help" at left. Then come back to this page, click "edit" above, select and copy the contents of this page and paste the contents into your newly created page.

2. The Problem
In IHE Scheduled Workflow (SWF.b), Assisted Procol Option, the "assignment of acquisition protocols" is included as a function of the Order Filler/Department System Scheduler (OF/DSS) Actor. In practice, implemented Order Filler Actors typically do not have the features necessary to properly assign protocols that would be performed by an acquisition system. A more recent profile, "Management of Acquisition Protocols" (MAP) was introduced for managing acquisition protocols, centrally across an enterprise by the Protocol Manager (PM) Actor.
While both the PM and the OF/DSS have key and distinct roles in Managing and assigning Acquisition Protocols, IHE has not identified transactions between these two profiles and their key actors actors. Providing this enterface will improve the efficiencies between the management, assignment and selection of acquisition protocols.
3. Key Use Case
<Describe a short use case scenario from the user perspective. The use case should demonstrate the integration/workflow problem.>
<Feel free to add a second use case scenario demonstrating how it “should” work. Try to indicate the people/systems, the tasks they are doing, the information they need, and hopefully where the information should come from.>
4. Standards and Systems
<List existing systems that are/could be involved in the problem/solution.>
<If known, list standards which might be relevant to the solution>
<Include additional discussion or consider a few details which might be useful for the detailed proposal>
- <Why IHE would be a good venue to solve the problem and what you think IHE should do to solve it.>
- <What might the IHE technical approach be? Existing Actors? New Transactions? Additional Profiles?>
- <What are some of the risks or open issues to be addressed?>
<This is the brief proposal. Try to keep it to 1 or at most 2 pages>
<Delete this Category Templates line since your specific Profile Proposal page is no longer a template.>
