IHE (XDS) Implementation Boot Camp

Product code: SI-139

This seminar covers the IHE profiles that are used to optimize workflow in imaging such as radiology and cardiology, and to communicate between PACS and/or a Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) and EMR's either direct or through a Health Information Exchange (HIE). The IHE ITI domain, in particular the various XDS and PIX/PDQ profiles are covered in detail. Prior to the IHE profile discussions, the attendees will get a refresher of the different DICOM and HL7 transactions that are used to execute the applicable IHE profiles. The audience is system integrators from both the vendor and provider side, developers, public health officials, and anyone who wants to get an overview of the DICOM and HL7 standards and a thorough understanding of the IHE specifications to facilitate purchasing and implementation of healthcare IT solutions.

Detailed Learning Objectives

You will learn how departments can effectively implement IHE profiles and therefore become more efficient and effective. The most important profiles such as Scheduled Workflow, import reconciliation, Key Images, Dose reporting and Change management to synchronize a PACS with a VNA are discussed. The ITI domain profiles including the XDS family will be shown. One will become familiar with the IHE documentation (included in the seminar hand-outs) to find details about the used transactions.


Your instructor will be Herman Oosterwijk, president of OTech Inc who is a seasoned health care IT trainer and consultant. Herman is currently co-chair of the IHE-USA implementation committee and has been involved with the DICOM and HL7 standards for many years as member of various working groups and chair of different committees. He has published several textbooks and study guides on PACS, DICOM, HL7 and EMR and is a frequent blogger about these topics.
