The ifa technology team is an active member of the IHE eye care (Integrating the Healthcare Environment) committee which is coordinated by the AAO (American Academy for Ophthalmology).
IHE Eye Care (Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise)
IHE is an initiative by healthcare professionals and industry to improve the way computer systems in healthcare share information. IHE promotes the coordinated use of established standards such as DICOM and HL7 to address specific clinical needs in support of improved patient care. Systems developed in accordance with IHE communicate with one another better, are easier to implement, and enable care providers to use information more effectively.
The American Academy for Ophthalmology (AAO) is the “engine” behind IHE in eye care. The IHE committee organizes IHE presentations in conjunction with the AAO annual meeting.
The IHE experts also publish checklists for health IT decisions.
