IHE International and HL7 are working in coordination to expedite the development and adoption of HL7 FHIR. Today, IHE has 18 IHE Profiles that leverage FHIR technology. An IHE Profile is equivalent to a FHIR implementation guide that takes a specific use case and defines Actors, Transactions, and Options to create a set of interoperability constraints which are defined for each Actor in that specific Profile. These constraints are coded as a FHIR resource and implemented to advance health IT. IHE has many ways to engage with innovative technologies that are immerging today’s health IT marketplace.
