IHE Certified Professional – IHE Foundations: The Technikum Wien Academy training program supports integrated care by interoperable IT and medical technology

Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE Austria) has set itself the goal of improving healthcare provision through its IHE integration profiles for data sharing in the healthcare sector. The profiles are used globally and recommended by the EU Commission. They create smooth interfaces between different data systems and thus ensure interoperability in the health care sector. All about IHE and how to make best use of the profiles can now be learned in the IHE Certified Professional Program. The Technikum Wien Academy is the first and only IHE accredited training provider worldwide for the IHE Certified Professional - IHE Foundations Level Exam.

The health sector is facing challenges with demographic change and increasing chronic diseases. In order to be able to offer high-quality health services, digital change and innovative e-health applications are essential. However, this urgently requires uniform data standards in IT and medical technology to ensure efficient and smooth data exchange also known as interoperability.

The IHE - Certified Professional – IHE Foundations course of the Technikum Wien Academy aims at exactly this. The course is part of the IHE Certified Professional Program, tailored to the needs of healthcare IT professionals who work with software products based on IHE profiles. This also includes those who work for healthcare service providers or software development companies or who are consultants in system integration.

The preparatory course covers all topics relevant to the multiple-choice IHE Foundations Exam. Depending on previous knowledge and learning speed, participants need approximately four to six days to complete the course. The exam is then taken online at GASQ.

The IHE Certified Professionals are qualified to identify IHE profiles and apply the IHE methodology (ISO / TR 28380) to enable interoperability for existing and new healthcare environments, thereby increasing overall quality and efficiency in the healthcare sector.
