3 3 Outline What is Interoperability? What is the IHE? What is the PCD? –What is the IHE PCD Process? –What are the IHE PCD Profiles? Why Should You Care about IHE? What Can You do? References and Contacts

4 4 What is Interoperability?

5 5 Current State of Affairs Proprietary protocols or variations on Standard protocols Hard to integrate with collaborating systems –difficult, expensive, and requiring continued monitoring Hard to integrate with competing vendors systems –difficult, expensive and requiring continuing negotiation for cooperation Hard to change from one vendor to another Requires careful selection, contracting, collaboration

6 6 Interoperability The Goal - Interoperability: The ability of two or more systems or components to exchange and use the information exchanged –Accurately, securely, verifiably –When and where needed Adapted from HL7, –With minimal or no effort, Plug and Play

7 7 What is IHE?

8 8 Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise International The IHE An international umbrella organization sponsored by RSNA, HIMSS and others… Voluntary, non-profit, operating in public view –Largely manufacturers, users, regulators An initiative by healthcare professionals and industry to improve the way computer systems share information. Systems developed in accordance with IHE Profiles communicate with one another better, are easier to implement, and enable care providers to use information more effectively.

9 9 What is IHE? What does IHE Do? In a nutshell: –IHE identifies Real-World Interoperability problems –Brings people together to design, test and demonstrate solutions using existing standards.

10 10 IHE International

11 11 What is the IHE? Value Propositions The IHE supports –Patient safety and reduced medical errors –Effective patient care with information when, where needed –Efficient organizations, less tedious and redundant work –Reduced cost Development is facilitated now, more in the future Complexity of interface deployment, management Regulatory compliance –Best of breed for the organization –National mandate for electronic medical records

12 12 Standards: Necessary…Not Sufficient Generally Standards are: –Foundational - to interoperability and communications –Broad - varying interpretations and implementations –Narrow - may not consider relationships between standards domains –Plentiful - often redundant or disjointed –Focused - standards implementation guides typically focus on a single standard IHE provides a defined process for implementing standards

13 13 IHE: Connecting Standards to Care Coordinate implementation of standards to meet clinical and administrative needs –Clinicians and HIT professionals identify the key interoperability problems they face –Providers and industry work together to develop and make available standards-based solutions –Implementers are able to follow common guidelines in purchasing and integrating effective systems SDOIHE is not an SDO, but does provide feedback IHE: A forum for defining needs, implementing standards and processes for making it happen

16 16 Two Foundational Domains IT Infrastructure Domain –Common foundational profiles ADT – including patient identity CT – consistent time Document transactions Security Patient Care Coordination Domain –Coordination between specific domains

17 17 What are Profiles? A profile describes the application of a standard(s) to provide specific requirements to accomplish the communication requirements. –Provides an opportunity for users & vendors to define requirements Requirements for development With Conformance Statements, for purchase Examples –HL7/DICOM – IHE Radiology –HL7/IEEE – Patient Care Devices

18 18 What is the Process? Define needs Set priorities Develop profiles with use cases Recruit volunteers for each profile to be developed Develop the technical solutions Demonstrate successful implementation –Connectathons –Showcases Publish for public access, comment at various stages

20 20 What is PCD?

21 21 PCD Domain Overview IHE PCD Charter regulated patient care device The Patient Care Devices Domain is concerned with Use Cases in which at least one actor is a regulated patient care device. The PCD coordinates with other IHE clinical specialty based domains such as medical imaging and laboratory.

22 22 PCD Domain Overview Established in 2005 when the charter was awarded to the ACCE Jointly sponsored by ACCE and HIMSS as of July 1, 2006 Technical Framework developed to communicate patient data (asynchronous) Successful demonstration at the 2007 & 2008 Connectathons and HIMSS Interoperability Showcases

23 23 PCD Participation in IHE

55 55 PIV Statement Point-of-Care Infusion Verification supports the electronic transfer of infusion parameters from a Barcode Point of Care (BPOC) system, also known as a Bar Code Medication Administration (BCMA) system, to an infusion pump.

56 56 PIV Benefits reduce errors increase caregiver productivity PIV will reduce errors by eliminating keystroke errors and by increasing the use of automatic dosage checking facilitated by onboard drug libraries. In addition to the reduction of medication administration errors, this integration may also increase caregiver productivity and provide more contextual information regarding infusion data.
