eHealth standardisation | Agoria

Our goal is to bring together all Beligan eHealth stakeholders from industry and care sector through our groups HL7 Belgium and IHE Belgium. Interoperability can be achieved through using and IHE profiles and international standards from DICOM, HL7 and ISO and terminologies like Snomed CT and Loinc.
