The Electronic Patient Record is an important step towards modernizing health systems worldwide. Only when we have access to current and comprehensive health data can we develop a new kind of cross-institution patient treatment. And only then can health systems reach their full potential, with the help of statistics, big data and innovations such as artificial intelligence and precision medicine.
This is possible with Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE). IHE is a worldwide non-profit initia-tive that works with users and manufacturers on eHealth interoperability use cases to create specifi-cations for them that are detailed, standards-based and accepted around the globe. In addition, IHE supports the use of these profiles with an open-source test platform and a product conformity as-sessment.
You’ll find the current blog post on the topic of IHE and standards here (German).
