HL7 delivers healthcare interoperability standards

New IHE Technical Framework Supplements & White Papers

04 June 2009

HL7 and IHE have a long history of partnership and producing complementary standards. IHE typically take HL7 standards and write deployment guides ("profiles") that demonstrate how to use them in a particular context. This is a valuable extra layer on top of the sometimes rather abstract source material.

IHE have recently announced a new set of profiles for review and comment:

  • Document Metadata Subscription (DSUB)
  • Multi-Patient Queries (MPQ)
  • Retrieve Form for Data Capture (RFD)
  • Cross-Community Patient Discovery (XCPD)
  • White Paper: Access Control
  • White Paper: A Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) View of IHE Profiles
