Integration Profile

Integration profiles describe the IHE actors and transactions needed to meet a specific integration need in a clinical environment. An integration profile also specifies exactly what part of what standards can be applied, the sequencing of the transactions between the actors, and the contents of the information exchanged. Related integration profiles are grouped into domains, with each group of profiles documented in a technical framework.

Because of the information they contain, integration profiles are critical for establishing interoperability between devices from different vendors.

The following is a list of integration profiles currently defined by IHE. Each profile name includes an abbreviation that is unique with in a domain (but not across domains). This list includes both trial implementation and final profiles; profiles are listed in the order that they have been developed.
