What is Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE)?

What is Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE)? | #HITsm | Scoop.it

From the GENi Blog: IHE is a group of health care industry representatives that work to improve the way health care systems share information electronically. The group was formed in 1998 as a cooperative venture by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) and the Radiologic Society of North America (RSNA) with the goal to promote interoperability among imaging and health care information systems. Today, IHE membership includes more than 200 global health care professional associations and health care vendors.


IHE encourages the use of established interoperability standards such as HL7 and DICOM. Systems developed in accordance with IHE communicate with one another better, are easier to implement and help health care providers use information more effectively and, ultimately, provide better patient care.

Rob Brull attended for the first time in 2012 and offers up his observations, including how it is refreshing to see vendors collaborating as each team worked toward proving interoperability.
