Case Study Archive

Since 2003, IHE has been collecting and publishing information about  projects that use IHE Integration Profiles to improve systems interoperability and information access for patients and providers within and across care sites. They highlight the advantages of using IHE to improve:

  • Operational efficiency in implementing and upgrading systems
  • Productivity and workflow efficiency
  • Communication among care providers and patients and access to vital medical information
  • Patient safety and quality of care

The exhibits linked below were first presented as part of the Interoperability Showcase at the HIMSS11 annual meeting.
