About

What is IHE?

Unlike HL7 (or ISO, or SNOMED, or WHO, etc.), IHE is not a health informatics standards development body. Rather, IHE is a standards profiling body. IHE Profiles are implementation guides – they make standards digestible, usable, and implementable. They describe, at a conformance-testable level of detail, how a portfolio of underlying standards will be employed to address the ecosystem-wide interoperability issues associated with a specific set of healthcare use cases. IHE Profiles create re-usable, digital health building blocks by “packaging up” the 5C’s:

  • Care context
  • Content specs
  • Coding specs
  • Communications specs
  • Confidentiality and security specs

The target audience for an IHE profile is the entire care delivery network. This especially includes the jurisdictional governance entities that are tasked with operationalizing plug-and-play interoperability between disparate network participants. IHE is focused on taking digital health interoperability to scale and to mitigating the risks inherent in such an effort.

What is the IHE Community?

The IHE Community is a place where health care professionals and the health information industry collaborate to improve the way health care technologies and systems share information.

To become a member of this community select Join Group in the Group Menu.

If you have an idea for a community, working group or project that will drive interoperability forward, let us know! Send your suggestions
