2 2 Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise facilitates integrating systems facilitates integrating systems for efficient, accurate patient care for efficient, accurate patient care Systems that support IHE Integration Profiles: communicate better & integrate more easily communicate better & integrate more easily provide more complete and accurate information provide more complete and accurate information better support care providers workflow better support care providers workflow

3 3 IHE = Integration Profiles Each IHE Profile describes a clinical information need or workflow scenario describes a clinical information need or workflow scenario documents how to use standards (e.g. HL7, DICOM,...) to accomplish it documents how to use standards (e.g. HL7, DICOM,...) to accomplish it Systems that implement the same Profile address a need in a mutually compatible way Hundreds of products support one or more IHE Radiology Profiles.

4 4 Your Three Step Program Select Specific IHE Profiles List those Profiles in your RFP Check Vendors IHE Integration Statements

5 5 Selecting IHE Profiles Review the Profiles : What they do Benefits for your situation Some Helpful Resources: - Profile Catalog IHE Users Handbook - Radiology RSNA Demonstrations Educational Material (e.g. Workshop Presentations) IHE Technical Framework – Radiology Connectathon Results

6 6 RFPs Your choice: Be Brief? The system must support DICOM The system must support DICOM Be Effective? The system must support the following DICOM services according to the following 100 pages of specifications: … The system must support the following DICOM services according to the following 100 pages of specifications: … Be Both: The system must support the IHE Scheduled Workflow Profile as the Acquisition Modality actor. The system must support the IHE Scheduled Workflow Profile as the Acquisition Modality actor. Vendor IHE Integration Statements Version 2.1 of the CardioCT 5000 supports IHE Scheduled Workflow as an Acquisition Modality Version 2.1 of the CardioCT 5000 supports IHE Scheduled Workflow as an Acquisition Modality

7 7 IHE Integration Statements Explicit claim by the vendor for a specific product version Lists IHE profiles, actors, options Short & Sweet

9 9 Lets look at an Example From the IHE Radiology Users Handbook Suppose youre buying a modality (see Chapter 1) Suppose your integration strategy has identified two key goals: Reducing/Preventing Errors Reducing/Preventing Errors Improving Throughput/Turnaround Improving Throughput/Turnaround Reviewing the Profile Benefits (see Section 1.1.1): Scheduled Workflow Profile has a significant impact on both goals: Scheduled Workflow Profile has a significant impact on both goals: Prevents manual data entry errors & saves time at the modality console by downloading patient demographics and study details from the RIS (MWL) Prevents manual data entry errors & saves time at the modality console by downloading patient demographics and study details from the RIS (MWL) Prevents lost studies & time wasted re-scanning by confirming PACS receipt of images to avoid accidental deletion (Storage Commitment); And saves more time because confirmation is automatic and electronic Reduces missing or irrelevant priors by storing a full set of accurate patient and study identifiers and details in each study object (Store) Reduces delays in the reporting process by notifying the RIS of exams in progress and ready to read (MPPS)

11 11 Using IHE Present IHE as an integration priority to your vendors. A Business goal ! Specify appropriate Profiles, Actors, Options in your RFP The system must support the IHE Scheduled Workflow Profile as the Acquisition Modality actor and support the Exception Management Option. The system must support the IHE Scheduled Workflow Profile as the Acquisition Modality actor and support the Exception Management Option. Request Integration Statements from your vendors Plan acceptance testing (see Section 1.2.2)

12 12 Dealing with Legacy Prepare to identify and address legacy system issues (see Section 1.2.4) Maximum benefit when all systems are IHE Most of you will have some non-compliant devices and systems Most of you will have some non-compliant devices and systems Make best effort to bring them up-to-date Make best effort to bring them up-to-date Incremental usage of IHE provides incremental benefit Its just clean DICOM and HL7; a great baseline Its just clean DICOM and HL7; a great baseline Get on the Yellow Brick Road... No sense buying New legacy equipment No sense buying New legacy equipment

21 21 Non-IHE Equipment Prepare coping strategies Need a clear plan of action for each device (See IHE Users Handbook – Radiology) Users can drive compliance to IHE by asking for it often

22 22 Profiles Implemented Scheduled Workflow (SWF) Patient Information Reconciliation (PIR) Consistent Presentation of Images (CPI) Charge Posting (CHG)

23 23 Replication After one site is properly implemented Additional sites are configured, trained and brought live in a rapid fashion IHE Profiles served as templates which worked well in small and large hospitals Experience in one site was easy to repeat elsewhere
