WORKSHOP AT HIC 18 - July 29th Novotel Darling Harbour, Sydney, NSW.

Connecting healthcare providers with standards
  • Digital hospitals – connecting medical devices and impact of EMR
  • Update on HL7 FHIR and implementation experience in IHE profiles
  • My Health Record – built on IHE standards; next steps in health information exchange
  • Usability and connectivity

This workshop covers a range of topics on electronic health communication and standardisation for health providers, managers and IT industry. The unifying theme is examining the use of standards to move healthcare connectivity forward. While standards involved are somewhat “hidden” from view, knowing about them is crucial for purchasers and users of healthcare technology. Knowing what is possible is a first step to success.

What is IHE Australia?

IHE Australia is an open, not-for-profit initiative that supports the interoperability needs of the e-Health community in Australia. IHE Australia is the official local deployment group of IHE International. IHE International is endorsed by over 600 professional and Standards organisations, healthcare providers and vendors world-wide. IHE Australia has local responsibility for the promotion and education of the IHE approach, the evaluation, localisation and creation of Integration Specifications ("Profiles") and the running of local conformance testing events ("Connectathons") and demonstrations ("Showcases") according to the IHE International guidelines, ISO 28380 TR and guided by Australian needs and context.

IHE focuses on implementation of multivendor solutions both with and between health enterprises.

IHE creates profiles or interoperability guides based on vendor technical input, based on existing global and local standards. IHE is a standards development organisation but works in partnership with the other major groups such as HL7, DICOM, IEEE

IHE Australia has run:
Connectathons focusing on implementation testing and development of IHE profiles, HL7 profiles and emerging Australian standards such as Secure Message Delivery. The Connectathon usually serves as the development and practice session for IHE Showcases.
Showcases as part of HIC conferences since 2006. IHE Australia Showcases are public real time demonstrations where vendors show how their products are able to integrate and inter-operate in clinical scenarios using members of the audience as "patients" watching their health information follow them through common health journeys. The Showcase is a significant marketing opportunity leveraging both product features and connectivity.
