IHE Integration Statements
Canon designs embrace open network standards to facilitate easy integration in the widest variety of network environments, complying with DICOM and IHE standards to assure standards-based communications protocol between network systems.
Canon has voluntarily implemented the communications of its medical imaging systems with the IHE initiative.
- Uses existing standards to define communications (DICOM, HL7 and web services) compatibility to improve the way computer systems in healthcare share information
- IHE integration improves patient care by harmonizing healthcare information exchange and provides a common standards-based framework for seamlessly passing health information among care providers
- IHE enhances the quality of patient care resulting in safety through the reduction of medical errors, savings through lower implementation costs and more efficient workflow
IHE Integration Statements are prepared to describe the intended conformance of the products with the IHE Technical Framework. They specify the IHE Actors and Integration Profiles the product supports.
