Healthcare Industry Standards

Software solutions based on standards

Standards are essential to a quickly changing healthcare industry. To reduce medical errors, improve access to medical records and support improvements to care, software solutions must adhere to certain standards. Perceptive Software incorporates these standards into the development of our healthcare solutions. We participate in leading certification associations, participate in IHE , and have attained 2014 Drummond certification.

Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE)

An initiative led by healthcare professionals, IHE’s overarching mission is to improve information-sharing among healthcare computer systems. This, in turn, helps support and enhance workflow within and across healthcare organizations. IHE promotes the coordinated use of such established standards as DICOM, HL7 and web services to address specific clinical needs in support of optimal patient care. Systems developed in accordance with IHE standards enable:

  • Superior communication among systems
  • Speedier and simpler pathways to implementation
  • More effective use of information by care providers
  • Improved workflow among care providers

The Perceptive Software platform conforms to IHE content repository and content sharing standards. Specifically, our support of IHE enables healthcare organizations to:

  • Share and exchange data with IHE-compliant systems
  • Use Perceptive Software repository as a centralized document repository
  • Store content captured with Perceptive Software technology in that same repository
