IHE at http://www.ihe.net is a major multi-year global interoperability initiative including the United States, Canada, Asia and Europe. IHE brings together care providers and other healthcare professionals with representatives of the healthcare IT industry and releases its work into the public domain. IHE's primary sponsors and domain sponsors are organizations of medical professionals who provide clinical and operational domain expertise in identifying critical integration priorities to be addressed. They oversee the work of more than 20 volunteer committees of thousands of industry professionals who define solutions to address these issues based on established information technology standards.
IHE's initial work in defining the interaction of general healthcare IT and imaging systems has been widely implemented and has greatly improved efficiency and information integrity in the radiology domain, and is being implemented by more than 95% of radiology vendors world-wide. IHE has expanded steadily to incorporate new domains, including Cardiology, Eye Care, IT Infrastructure, Laboratory, Pathology, Nuclear Medicine, Patient Care Coordination, Patient Care Devices and Radiation Oncology.
