Digitalisation and networking in healthcare

Digitalisation and networking of service providers are revolutionising the healthcare system. x-tention has many years of experience and extensive know-how in the implementation of standards-based workflows in healthcare and healthcare-specific standards for data exchange (HL7v2, HL7v3, CDA, DICOM, SOAP, XACML, SAML) and extensive experience with architectures such as ELGA, eFA and IHE. Our offer includes analysis, conceptual design and implementation of integration platforms for the exchange of administrative and medical data. We support you with professional project management through certified project managers and help to secure operations through our expert helpdesk staff.

Together with your management team, IT and organisational development departments, we analyse your organisation and core service areas. We consider all technical, organisational and legal conditions that are relevant for a successful connection to an electronic patient or health record. We develop coordinated measures to take advantage of new opportunities through networking, improve processes and increase structural quality.



IHE – Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise

x-tention has several years of experience in the implementation of standards-based workflows in healthcare and supports a wide range of customers with integration solutions based on standards like IHE. With the solutions offered by x-tention, we have extensive IHE know-how from a technical and professional point of view. This enables us to offer individual IHE workshops tailored your needs.

Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) is a non-profit initiative of health care professionals that aims to improve communication between different IT systems and medical devices. IHE promotes the use of established international standards such as DICOM and HL7 to optimise processes within hospitals, practices or even health care facilities. IHE relies on the collaboration of users, implementers and developers. The result is a comprehensive technical framework as an implementation guide and a set of test tools for users and manufacturers. (,
