What is IHE?

Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) is an initiative undertaken by medical specialists and other care providers, administrators, information technology professionals, and industry professionals to improve the way computer systems in health care share information. IHE promotes coordinated use of established communications standards such as DICOM and HL7 (see question 12) to address specific clinical needs that support 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.
