2 1 Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise IHE for Administrators: Confronting Deployment Obstacles Ellie Avraham, Kodak Health Group Paul Nagy, PhD University of Maryland

3 RSNA 20062 for Administrators Classroom Sessions Learning Objectives This is to address the Radiology Workflow Integration for the PACS/IT Administrators We will discuss the problems you face, the approach IHE takes, and some useful tools for testing

4 RSNA 20063 for Administrators Classroom Sessions Discussion Areas The Radiology Workflow – Values required Implementing the Radiology Workflow through the IHE Integrated Solutions Using the IHE Testing Tools (MESA) to test your products implementation of the Radiology Workflow

5 RSNA 20064 for Administrators Classroom Sessions Modern Hospital Information Flow Complexity MPI ADT RIS PACSModalityDisplay & Print HIS Billing Lab Cardio

6 RSNA 20065 for Administrators Classroom Sessions Institute of Medicine Model of Service and Redesign of Healthcare Safety Effectiveness Patient centeredness Timeliness Efficiency Equity Align to the patient Source: Insititute of Medicine, Crossing the chasm

7 RSNA 20066 for Administrators Classroom Sessions … a new generation of Healthcare IT solutions that have an order of magnitude greater level of integration. … a whole new level of Complexity Management to manage these interfaces. … we need to Decrease the time for integrating the Multi Vendors systems. … we need the capabilities for plug and play Automatic interoperability of systems. … we need to lower the total cost of integration To achieve these goals we need …

8 RSNA 20067 for Administrators Classroom Sessions Standards Exists: DICOM, HL7 The main purpose of standards is to provide the Interoperability among systems and lower the cost of integration between systems. The more plug and play integration the lower is the cost of the workflow implementation. However Standards are broad and include options that reduce the interoperability So we need to constrain the Standards options in order to improve the interoperability

9 RSNA 20068 for Administrators Classroom Sessions What is IHE Joint Initiative from RSNA, HIMSS and ACC since 1998 IHE is a collaboration of Users and Vendors on Integrating the Healthcare Imaging systems and Information systems IHE defines standardized clinical workflow solutions and a process for Development and validation implementations –Cross vendor & user discussion groups –Technical Framework for Integration Solutions: SWF, CPI, XDS-I,… –Validations testing tools - MESA –Connect-a-thons - Multi-vendor connectivity testing –Publication of success stories and integration statements –Educational materials and presentations The IHE profiles are defined in a Technical Framework that specify the Actors / functionality and the transactions that defines the exchanging information among the actors.

10 RSNA 20069 for Administrators Classroom Sessions IHE Technical Framework Components »The IHE Technical Framework (TF) defines Integrated Solutions, called Integration Profiles. A Profile defines a workflow or a specific problem solution. »A Profile defines a collaboration between Actors. An actor is a well defined entity, such as an Image Display, Image Manager, Image acquisition, etc. »The Actors communicate and collaborate among themselves by implementing a set of communication messages called Transactions. The Transactions defines the messages (actions) that an Actor needs to support.

11 RSNA 200610 for Administrators Classroom Sessions IHE Technical Framework – Use Case Roles & Interaction Diagrams Examples of Actors:Examples of Actors: -ADT / Patient Registration -Scheduler -Acquisition Modality -Image Display -Report Reader Examples of Transactions:Examples of Transactions: -Register Patient -Procedure Scheduled -Images Stored -Query / Retrieve Images -Query / Retrieve Reports

12 RSNA 200611 for Administrators Classroom Sessions Users IHE Vendors RFP (Profiles & Actors) Standards (DICOM, HL7, etc) Standards (DICOM, HL7, etc) Standards (DICOM, HL7, etc) IHE Integration Statement (Profiles & Actors) C-Thon Results Select IHE Profiles IHE Integration Profiles IHE Integration Profiles IHE Integration Profiles IHE Technical Framework Product with IHE Profile IHE Connectathons IHE Demonstrations Real-World Integration Problems The IHE Process

13 RSNA 200612 for Administrators Classroom Sessions The Connectathon Voluntary Participation Neither a Demonstration nor a Certification Well Designed End-to- End Scenarios Advanced Testing Tools Unprecedented Cross- Vendor Testing Unprecedented Pool of Technical Talent

14 RSNA 200613 for Administrators Classroom Sessions IHE Connectathon Results Consolidated Earlier Progress & Push for Market Adoption More Robust Connectathon –Results Recorded and Published Increased Industry Participation –31 companies –70 systems –21 Additional Companies in IHE Europe

20 RSNA 200619 for Administrators Classroom Sessions IHE Deployment – Testing the Integrated System Solutions For Healthcare to succeed in the digital transformation it will need much better integration between its systems. IHE is an open based standards approach to lower the cost of integrating healthcare and exposing many more processes. Open Source can accelerate the adoption of IHE by helping to educate administrators to learn how to test the integration

21 RSNA 200620 for Administrators Classroom Sessions Open Source - Integration testing tools There are many (dozens) of DICOM and HL7 tools. Too many to mention. The web site has a repository with all the main open source Integration testing tools

25 RSNA 200624 for Administrators Classroom Sessions IHE Medical Enterprise Simulators and Analyzers (MESA) Provides the Test Procedures and Simulation of all the IHE Profiles and Actors. Excellent Documentation. Developed by the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology MESA Tools runs on different operating systems: Windows 2000, Windows XP, Solaris 7.0, Red Hat Linux 7.0 & 9.0 from Intel. The MESA tool is organized for particular IHE actors as defined in the IHE Technical Framework

26 RSNA 200625 for Administrators Classroom Sessions Step 1. Install MESA tools Decide What Actors/Systems you need to test Read the Installation Guide for installing the tools you need to test your Actors/Systems Precompiled and Source Codes are available Recommend to Install the preferred Windows 2000 precompiled MESA s/w ready to be used
