This training course is also provided on-site upon request; the training course is modular in nature and can easily be converted into either an IHE XDS (document exchange, without imaging) training course or in an IHE XDS-I (image exchange only) training course. Call +31 33 7 630 636 for additional information.

Keywords: IHE XDS, XCA, regional/national document and image exchange architectures, document metadata, affinity domain, enterprise clinical data storage,document lifecycle management.

Who Should Attend: This training course is aimed at those involved with the design, development, implementation, deployment and support

  • of systems that use (or will use) the IHE XDS or IHE XDS-I standard,
  • of an architecture for the archival of both diagnostic images as well as (non-image) documents, in support of an Electronic Health Record incorporating all aspects of the EHR, not just medical imaging.
  • of an architecture for the exchange of documents (images as well as non-images) between departments and between organizations, in support of cross-organizational workflows.

What is covered: The IHE (Integrating the Health Care Enterprise) activities have resulted in a series of profiles. You will get familiar with the IHE XDS profile as well as related/supporting profiles , e.g. related to the structure of the medical documents, authentication and patient consent. The focus will be on common data flow patterns of XDS-based infrastructures. The exercises (whether theoretical or hands-on in nature) serve to allow you to further familiarise yourself with the IHE specifications.

Learning goals: after this training course the attendees will be able to:

  • Explain the core features of IHE XDS and related IHE profiles,
  • Identify issues related to the archiving of both documents as well as images,
  • Explain the dependencies between IHE XDS, architectures for archival (ECM, VNA, Cloud), and metadata management,
  • Determine how IHE XDS and related IHE profiles fit within your own context.
