Training course Healthcare Information Exchange, XDS hands-on and overview for EMEA area

This three-day online training course focusses on Healthcare Information Exchange (HIE) using standards. Most of these international standards are based on IHE (Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise). As an standards development organisation IHE develops profiles for sharing electronic medical documents and images. During this training course we’ll discuss XDS(i) and related profiles for successful use within Healthcare Information Exchanges. These cover topics such as: patient consent, authentication and new profile developments using HL7 FHIR. 
Hands-on experience is gained using simulation tools for submitting documents and images and retrieving them. Furthermore, examples and best practices from different projects will be shared. Approximately 1 hour per day is reserved for homework assignments, discussed at the start of the next day.

Learning goals
After this training course you will be able to:

  1. Explain the advantages of IHE-XDS(i) and related profiles to others. 
  2. Describe the importance and essence of:
    Documents and metadata
    Access control and authentication.
  3. Use tooling for submitting and retrieving documents and images in a simulated Healthcare Information Exchange.
  4. Write down the highlights on privacy and security within Healthcare Information Exchanges. 
  5. Connect the most important XDS related profiles within Healthcare Information Exchanges.
  6. Find your way around general and technical IHE documentation.
  7. Translate mobile IHE profiles based on HL7 FHIR to existing Healthcare Information Exchange infrastructure.

This training course sets out the (technical) base for professionals that are (considering) implementing, designing, developing or supporting systems for healthcare information exchanges. It is therefore of interest to project leaders, (PACS/VNA) administrators and professionals, integration specialists and vendors working on healthcare information exchange systems (using XDS).

Participants should have basic knowledge on workflows in health care. Also, it is recommended to have basic knowledge on XML, Web-services, DICOM and HL7. 

Technical requirements:
For the exercises you’ll have to use a PC or laptop (Windows or Mac, no Chromebooks) with administrator rights. For interaction with the tutors and other participants, a headphone with microphone and webcam is required.
