Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE)1

IHE is an initiative by healthcare professionals and industry to improve the way computer systems in healthcare share information. IHE promotes the coordinated use of established standards such as DICOM and HL7 to address specific clinical needs 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.

It has developed and documented standards-based solutions to these problems and organized testing and education to foster their adoption. IHE solutions are now available in hundreds of commercial radiology-related information systems and are implemented in care sites around the world.
