IHE Belgium has been established in December 2016 to give shape to IHE within the country. IHE, Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise, 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 optimal 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.
As a neutral entity IHE Belgium will ensure the values of IHE International and disseminate them to maximize their acceptance and / or adoption.
IHE Belgium will promote the use of IHE profiles in interoperability towards:
- Public initiatives, in their IT solutions
- Vendors in Belgium, in their products and services
- Healthcare providers in Belgium, in their tenders, requirements, own developments
