IHE International

IHE [Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise] is an initiative by healthcare professionals and industry to improve the way computer systems in healthcare share information. IHE International promotes the coordinated use of established standards such as DICOM and HL7 to address specific clinical need in support of optimal patient care. Systems developed in accordance with IHE communicate with one another better, are easier to implement, and enable care providers to use information more effectively. Also see IHE USA.
