    Cardiology Cardiac Procedure Note The CPN Profile is a content profile that provides an implementation guide consisting of a library of templates to be used for various cardiac subspecialty reports and clinical data exchange. It defines the structure and the content for a clinical report for various cardiac procedures. Initially supported will be adult procedures in the Electrophysiology (EP) and the Cath Lab; however, the aim is to provide an extensible framework that allows for the addition of further report templates in future (e.g., general cardiac imaging procedures like Echocardiography, cardiac CT, MR, or Nuclear Medicine Imaging).

    IT Infrastructure Remove Metadata and Documents The Remove Metadata and Documents (RMD) Profile allows for the removal of metadata from the Document Registry and documents from a Document Repository that are no longer required to be discoverable within a patient's care record. The decision to remove this data may have been initiated either by an automated mechanism or manual administrative procedure in order to enforce a pre-determined policy or legal requirement within an XDS Affinity Domain. TI 2017-03-01 2017-07-24
    IT Infrastructure Non-patient File Sharing This supplement defines how to enable the sharing of not-patient related documents. Those documents can be created and consumed by many different systems involved in a wide variety of data sharing workflows (clinical workflow definition, domain policies sharing, stylesheets management, etc.). This supplement identifies three actors: File Server Actor, File Consumer Actor, File Source Actor. In order to fulfill use-cases requirements, this profile defines three new transactions: Submit File, Search File, Retrieve File. The goal of this supplement is to identify protocol requirements for the sharing of files, primary focusing on three types of files: 1) Workflow Definitions: structured or unstructured documents that define the processing rules for a specific clinical/administrative workflow; 2) Privacy Domain Policies: structured or unstructured documents that describe a specific privacy policy that can be subscribed by the patient; 3) Stylesheets: structured documents that can be used by user-agents (e.g. Web Browsers) to render the content of an XML document. In addition, this profile defines a mechanism that enables the sharing of other types of files. TI 2017-05-17 2017-08-04
    IT Infrastructure Mobile Document Data Element Extraction Patient-centric Data-element Location Service The Mobile Document Data Element Extraction (mXDE) Profile introduces health data location discovery and fine grained access to health data to coexist and complement coarse grained (document as a coherent set of fined grained data elements) access. TI 2017-05-26 2017-08-04
    IT Infrastructure Mobile Care Services Discovery The mCSD Profile supports queries across the following related care services resources: 1) Organization, 2) Location, 4) Practitioner, 4) Healthcare Service. Because it maintains interlinked directory information, the mCSD Profile is able to respond to queries such as: 1)Which locations are associated with which organizations? 2)What services are provided at specific locations or, conversely, where are the locations that provide a specified service? 3) Who are the practitioners associated with a particular organization; what services do they provide; at which locations do they provide these services, and when? The mCSD Profile’s loosely coupled design and flexible querying capability means it can be deployed within a number of eHealth architectures and support a wide array of care workflows.

    Pathology and Laboratory Medicine (PaLM) Laboratory-Clinical Communications The communication and resolution of needs for order replacement, result confirmation and result interpretation are integral parts of quality laboratory service that are currently managed on an ad hoc basis outside of information systems. Communications can be delayed or lost and summary data about ordering and resulting problems is difficult to compile. Thus recognition and correction of the immediate or systemic problems indicated by these communications is time consuming and error prone. This new profile will enable rapid, standardized, automated capture of and response to problems related to orders and questions about results, and will allow this information to be logged, tracked, and included in QA studies and process improvement projects. PC 2017-11-29 TBD
    Pathology and Laboratory Medicine (PaLM) Laboratory Specimen Handoff Passing of specimens between Laboratory Automation Systems (LAS) and Specimen Processing Devices (SPD) is an integral part of clinical laboratory operation. But current LAS and SPD vendors have little guidance on how to implement specimen handoff. HL7 and CLSI AUTO3-A provide some direction, but do not provide specific guidance for individual handoff workflows. In the absence of any industry guidance, specimen handoffs are defined on an ad hoc basis. This approach tends to ensure that each vendor will take a unique path, even though specimen handoff interfaces share a high degree of commonality among most vendors. There clearly exists a need for fully specified interface protocols to reduce the time and costs associated with managing specimen handoff in clinical laboratories. The Laboratory Specimen Handoff (LSH) profile will provide standardized workflows for the most common laboratory specimen handoff use cases.   TBD TBD
    Pathology and Laboratory Medicine (PaLM) Transfusion Medicine - Administration The Transfusion Medicine – Administration (TMA) supplement defines workflows and messaging transactions which focus on communicating the administration of and adverse reactions to blood products from an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system to a Laboratory Information System (LIS), Incident Reporting System (IRS), or other interested observer of the transfusion process.

    Radiology Cross-Enterprise Remote Read Workflow Definition This supplement addresses Cross Domain or Cross Enterprise Remote Reading Workflow. This workflow is the practice of having medical images interpreted (read) by a reading specialist who is not present at the site where the diagnostic imaging study was acquired and is not reporting using the local PACS and dictation system at the acquiring site. Specifically, the Radiologist or reading specialist is requested to read an exam from another organization with a separate Hospital Information System, Radiology Information System and PACS. The profile workflow includes the Request's Creation, Dispatch, Perform (Interpretation) and Completion (report delivery) of diagnostic imaging study. TI 2016-04-22 2017-01-13
    Radiology Follow-Up of Non-Critical Actionable Findings The Follow-Up of Non-Critical Actionable Findings Profile supports the communication and monitoring of follow-up of non-critical actionable findings identified on radiology imaging examinations. The profile describes transmission of the necessary follow-up parameters including: patient information, discrete information on the finding, recommended downstream test(s), and recommended time interval to a designated “home” facility that can take responsibility for resolution of the follow-up recommendation. The profile describes requirements for closing the follow-up loop, either by completing the recommended testing or returning a message describing why follow-up is not clinically indicated. It provides for repeated, escalating reminders if the initial recommendation is not acknowledged within a specified time period and considers issues of how to communicate such information both to known local providers as well as those outside the local affinity domain.   TBD TBD
    Radiology Management of Acquisition Protocols The Management of Acquisition Protocols Profile supports the collection of scan protocols from acquisition modalities, their review on a protocol manager and re-distribution to modalities. Protocol managers are permitted to edit attributes marked safe by the creating modality. Such attributes will likely include protocol names, dose notification thresholds and series names for generated images.
    The transactions are based on storage, query and retrieval of DICOM® instances containing scan procedure protocols and protocol approvals. Although the profile is agnostic to the type of modality, as of 2016 DICOM has only published the specification for a CT Protocol Storage object. Other modalities are being investigated but the specifications have not yet been published.

    Radiology Standardized Operational Log of Events Efficient businesses use business intelligence tools to manage their business. The application of these tools to manage medical care has been limited in part because the information often resides in several different systems, and there are not standard ways to obtain the information. The SOLE Profile defines a way to exchange information about events that can then be collected, analyzed and displayed using standard methods. TI 2017-03-17 2017-06-21
    Radiology Web-based Image Capture Web-based Image Access (WIA) Profile, formerly known as Mobile Access to Health Document for Imaging (MHD-I), defines methods for image sharing and interactive viewing of imaging studies using RESTful services such as WADO-RS and QIDO-RS. WIA can be used independently or combined with the IT Infrastructure Mobile access to Health Document (MHD) Profile. When combined with MHD, it allows the MHD Document Consumer to locate and access imaging studies using document metadata. PC 2017-09-15 TBD

    Radiology Clinical Decision Support - Order Appropriateness New U.S. legislation mandates the use of clinical decision support (CDS) when ordering imaging exams. As of January 1, 2017, CMS will withhold payment unless the referring provider documents use of CDS in the claim for the exam. We must have standards for the creation of the required CDS data on the order and the movement of the data through to billing to correctly implement this new rule. HL7 has a messaging format for orders exchange between order placer and order filler. This is currently profiled in IHE Scheduled Workflow. CDS vendors currently use HL7 segments for their current data. A CDS Profile could present a standard way to capture the required data and send it through the rendering provider and on to the billing system. There is high market interest in standardizing, as today over 370 million ambulatory imaging studies are ordered annually in the U.S., plus another share of the over 400 million hospital imaging studies that are considered outpatient. The data-flow and record-keeping necessary to comply would be difficult to do correctly and cost-effectively without automation and integration. Referring and rendering providers, as well as the respective vendors, have shown interest in working on this. IHE Scheduled Workflow already carries many elements of an imaging order through the radiology workflow. It could be expanded to include new CDS data specific to the mandate. There are additional elements that would be helpful to add as well, such as receiving facility. Other data included in standards could be improved, such as exam priority. The Profiles on PIX and PDQ are very helpful in this as well. TI 2015-02-19 2015-06-12
    Radiology Web-based Image Capture (WIC) The Web-based Image Capture (WIC) Profile provides a simple, lightweight, mobile-friendly mechanism to encode and send captured images, videos and evidence documents from the mobile device to the Image Manager so that these objects can be easily integrated into the rest of the imaging workflow.  TI 2015-02-19 2015-04-21
    Radiology Radiology Remote Reading Workflow Cross-Enterprise or Community Diagnostic Image Sharing Services are increasingly part of the infrastructure landscape in the clinical community. Leading the way are IHE profiles and standards, such as XDS-I proving the infrastructure framework for image and document exchange. Cross-enterprise image sharing, beyond the initial step, has the capability to attain efficiencies and reduce cost at a macro-scale level: (a) Improve throughput of radiology departments by allowing any qualified radiologist in the community to read and report a study, (b) Align the number of resources (staff, equipment) with the needs of the community as opposed to considering individual hospitals only, (c) Facilitate assignment of studies to physicians that are best qualified to read them (e.g., a SPECT expert may be leveraged across the community), (d) Provide off-hours coverage by sharing radiologists' services off peak hours.
