This high paced web-based seminar teaches the essential components of the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) specification. In particular, radiology imaging profiles such as scheduled workflow, IOCM and others, and related IT infrastructure (ITI) profiles dealing with image and information management such as PAM, PIX/PDQ and XDS are discussed.


This seminar is intended for professionals who support, manage and develop medical imaging devices such as PACS and departmental information systems, enterprise archiving systems and systems that are image enabled such as Electronic Health Records. This can be PACS administrators, biomedical engineers, service engineers and IT personnel including interface analysts. This seminar is also useful for anyone who wants to learn about this standard as they are looking for a career in healthcare imaging and informatics such as software developers, integration and interface specialists.

Detailed Learning Objectives

Students will understand the IHE specifications, i.e. the protocol details such as the profiles, its corresponding actors and transactions and will be able to read these specifications and interpret them.
