Integrated Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) initiative
The IHE initiative is operated and driven by the Directorate of Clinical Radiology. It applies the ICARAS* standards-based implementation strategy to develop and deploy medical images and health records across the South West region. The facility is available to an expert in any part of the World. It uses high speed fixed and mobile-wireless data links. The Directorate is the expert centre for acute care in the South West, and connects to all trusts and hospitals that refer patients to UBHT. Clinical services in the IHE framework currently include: cancer, paediatrics, obstetrics, cardiac catheter laboratory, pathology, GI, ENT and radiology. The organisational core that underpins the IHE initiative are the numerous, virtual, region wide multi disciplinary clinical teams (eMDTs) that exchange and share real time clinical images and data.
