Interpreting the IHE Technical Framework
|New monitors||Connectathon Terminology:
Definitions needed to understand using Gazelle during a connectathon (known to most returning participants; highly recommended for new participants & monitors)
|**optional** educational material for monitors||
IHE 2017 Educational Webinar Series
IT Infrastructure domain training material
|multiple presentations available; duration varies|
|Some of you may be interested in the training material we compile for vendor participants, but monitors do not need to review it. We collect participants' material on our Training Page.|
To prepare for the connectathon, we recommend you read the chapter in "Volume 1" for the profiles you are assigned to evaluate. Each IHE domain's Technical Framework is segmented into multiple volumes; Volume 1 contains the use cases the profile addresses, the process flow and a diagram of the actors & transactions in the profiles. The technical details of the transactions are not in Vol 1, and as a monitor, you do not need to be an expert at that level. If you are reading a Trial Implementation Supplement, you will see that the contents are separated into Volume 1 and Volume 2 within the supplement.
If you are not familiar with IHE documentation, we recommend you view the "Interpreting the IHE Technical Framework" video in the training section above before you read the documentation.
IHE publishes its documents, organized by domain, on the Technical Framework page of ihe.net.
We have put together this FAQ with answers to questions we frequently receive from our vendor participants. You may find it informative.
This is a great welcome to new monitors captured on video. While it is was done by a SIIM board member at the beginning of Connectathon monitor training in 2009, his points about the benefits of your volunteer service stand true today. We invite you to watch this 5 minute video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&feature=endscreen&v=6SrkvyB1EPs
