IHE XDS, Healthcare Information Exchange (HIE) and ECM

The IHE (Integrating the Health Care Enterprise) activities have resulted in a series of profiles. You will get familiar with the IHE XDS profile as well as related/supporting profiles, e.g. related to the structure of the medical documents, authentication and patient consent.

Who Should Attend

This training course is aimed at those involved with the design, development, implementation, deployment and support

  • of systems that use (or will use) the IHE XDS or IHE XDS-I standard,
  • of an architecture for the archival of both diagnostic images as well as (non-image) documents, in support of an Electronic Health Record incorporating all aspects of the EHR, not just medical imaging.
  • of an architecture for the exchange of documents (images as well as non-images) between departments and between organizations, in support of cross-organizational workflows.

What is covered

The IHE (Integrating the Health Care Enterprise) activities have resulted in a series of profiles. You will get familiar with the IHE XDS profile as well as related/supporting profiles, e.g. related to the structure of the medical documents, authentication and patient consent. The relationship between IHE XDS, Vendor Neutral Archives (VNA), Enterprise Content Management (ECM) applications and enterprise archiving strategies will also be discussed.

Learning goals: 

After this training course the attendees will be able to:

  • Explain the core features of IHE XDS and related IHE profiles,
  • Identify issues related to the archiving of both documents as well as images,
  • Explain the dependencies between IHE XDS, architectures for archival (ECM, VNA, Cloud), and metadata management,
  • Determine how IHE XDS and related content management principles fit within your own context.

Prerequisites 

Attendees are assumed to have a basic understanding of XML, Webservices, HL7 version 2 and HL7 version 3.
