Involved with IHE since 2006
My involvement in IHE is founded on the true believe in the IHE methodology. The consequent way of living a fair and collaborative relationship between vendors and users throughout all committees and working groups is a unique characteristic of IHE which is one important factor of its success.
Having had first contact with IHE in 2006 ago as a software vendor implementing several IHE profiles and participating in IHE Connectathons, I entered the just founded IHE Pharmacy Development Committee in 2009 where I became author of the first Community Pharmacy profiles. Having then experienced IHE from the perspective of a vendor, a deployment committee and a profile developer I moved on to further advance IHE in terms of organization and strategy.
Currently I am honored to serve as board member of IHE International, deputy co-chair of IHE Europe, co-chair of the IHE Global Deployment Coordination Committee, co-chair of the IHE Pharmacy domain, chair of the IHE Education Committee and founding board member of IHE Austria. Additionally, I am member of Joint Steering Committee of the IHE / HL7 Gemini project – A Joint Initiative of IHE and HL7 to Advance Use of FHIR for Interoperability and several other IHE working teams.
Recently I was appointed into the Executive Board of the HIMSS/IHE/HL7 Global Consortium for eHealth Interoperability (www.interop.org) as one of the two IHE representatives.
