Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE)
The IHE initiative is a project designed to advance the state of data integration in healthcare. Sponsored by the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), it brings together medical professionals and the healthcare information and imaging systems industry to agree upon document standards and demonstrate standards-based methods of sharing information in support of optimal patient care.
The goal of the IHE initiative is to stimulate integration of healthcare information resources, beginning with Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS), through the use of open standards. IHE also encourages comprehensive integration among the full array of imaging and other healthcare information systems.
ACP involvement: Through the Board of Regents, ACP has established an affiliation with the IHE as a domain sponsor of the Patient Care Coordination (PCC) domain. This domain focuses on clinical information exchange across care settings, particularly in terms of content. Richard Kasama, governor-elect of the ACP NJ chapter, currently serves as the clinical co-chair for the PCC planning committee.
