PACS, ICRS and IHE: making sense of electronic healthcare records.
Complex modern healthcare delivery depends on appropriate access to currently relevant data, which implies interoperability of computer systems at a national scale. There is a growing expectation that relevant records will be multimedia records that include or reference images, waveforms and other large information objects as stored in PACS. The Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) initiative has implemented a methodology to enable users and suppliers in the medical imaging domain to work together to implement interoperable systems using subsets of existing standards. IHE provisions can form the basis for an important part of the patient record stored in electronic form.
