Softneta employees participated in IHE training this week. We hope this will improve the way computer systems share healthcare information and give better results for us in the nearest future.
As is well known, IHE promotes the coordinated use of established standards such as DICOM and HL7 to address specific clinical needs in support of optimal patient care. Interfacing systems is one of the key challenges faced by any healthcare institution’s IT staff. Understanding the differing implementations of standards in various vendor systems and trying to find ways to reconcile them is an expensive, labor-intensive and often painful process. IHE offers a common framework for vendors, IT departments, clinical users and consultants to understand and address clinical integration needs. The IHE Technical Framework allows flexibility while ensuring that key integration needs are met.
