Title: Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise IHE Brief Overview


1
Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE)
Brief Overview
Joyce Sensmeier MS, RN, BC, CPHIMS Director of
Professional Services Healthcare Information and
Management Systems Society (HIMSS)
2
What is IHE?
  • A joint initiative to improve systems integration
  • Process for coordinated adoption of standards
  • Clinicians/IT staff define needs
  • Vendors and IT Professionals develop solutions
  • Technical Framework
  • Professional societies supervise documentation,
    testing and demonstration/promotion

3
Putting standards together.
for effective information exchange
Bridging the gap ? How to drive
effective standards Implementations
  • IHE
  • Integration Profiles Spec.
  • Testing Process
  • Compliance
  • Practical Deployment

4
Goals of IHE
  • Speed up the rate and quality of integration in
    healthcare environments
  • Foster communication among vendors
  • Prove that integration is attainable based on
    standards
  • Improve the efficiency and effectiveness of
    clinical practice

5
What IHE is NOT!
  • A standards development organization
  • Uses established standards (HL7, DICOM, others)
    to address specific clinical needs
  • Activity complementary to SDOs, formal
    relationship with HL7 and DICOM
  • Simply a demonstration project
  • Demos only one means to the endadoption
  • Backed up by documentation, tools, testing, and
    publication of information

6
IHE Participants
  • Societies Representing Healthcare Segments
  • ( RSNA, HIMSS, ACC, ACCE, Other Professional
    Societies )
  • Users
  • ( Clinicians, Medical Staff, Administrators,
    CIOs, )
  • Information Systems Vendors
  • Imaging Systems Vendors
  • Consultants
  • Standards Development Organizations (SDOs)
  • DICOM
  • HL7, others

7
Benefits to IHE Participants
  • Clinicians
  • Improved workflow
  • Information when and where needed
  • Fewer opportunities for errors
  • Fewer tedious tasks/repeated work
  • Administrators
  • Improved efficiency
  • Best of breed opportunities
  • Decreased cost and complexity of interface
    deployment and management

8
Benefits to IHE Participants
  • Vendors
  • Decreased cost and complexity of interface
    installation and management
  • Validation of integration at Connectathon
  • Focus competition on functionality/service space
    not information transport space
  • SDOs
  • Rapid feedback to adjust standards to real-world
  • Establishment of critical mass and widespread
    adoption

Plus, IHE meets fixed deadlines
9
IHE Process
  • IHE bridges the gap between healthcare
    information exchange standards, IT standards, and
    their implementation, in easy to deploy products.
  • Healthcare professionals define IHE integration
    profiles that when developed in IHEs vendor /
    provider collaborative manner, address complex
    healthcare delivery processes.
  • IHE delivers, through yearly cycles
  • a technical framework detailing specific use of
    existing standards in integration profiles,
  • a testing process which validates
    implementations,
  • an education and implementation promotion
    machinery,
  • documentation by which customers can leverage the
    purchase of compliant systems.

IHE drives healthcare standards based-integration

11
A Proven Standards Adoption Process
IHE ConnectathonResults
User Site
  • IHE Integration Profiles at the heart of IHE
  • Detailed selection of standards and options each
    solving a specific integration problem
  • A growing set of effective provider/vendor agreed
    solutions
  • Vendors can implement with ROI
  • Providers can deploy with stability

12
IHE Deliverables
  • Venues for discussion between users and vendors
  • Common vocabulary/ view of the world based on
  • Standard information models (HL7, DICOM, etc.)
  • Coded information and their meaning
  • Technical Framework An Implementation Guide
  • ACTORS in roles performing TRANSACTIONS to
    accomplish Specific Processes
  • Together they form INTEGRATION PROFILES
  • Connectathon Cross-vendor testing opportunity.
  • Public Demonstrations / Education/ Publications
  • Marketing Tools for compliant products
  • Connectathon results published
  • Products claim conformance with Integration
