IHE is an initiative by healthcare professionals and industry to improve the way computer systems in healthcare share information.
IHE Profiles organize and leverage the integration capabilities that can be achieved by coordinated implementation of communication standards, such as DICOM, HL7 W3C and security standards. They provide precise definitions of how standards can be implemented to meet specific clinical needs.
Systems developed in accordance with IHE Profiles communicate with one another better, are easier to implement, and enable care providers to use information more effectively.
These IHE Profiles are validated, year after year in a Connectathon week which take place in Europe, North America and Asia. The purpose of a Connectathon is both to prove that the specification is complete as well as to prove that implementations written to that specification can ‘connect’.
The following IHE Integration Statement is the document which describe the conformance of Enovacom products with IHE Profiles.
