IHE Integration Statements
Toshiba 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.
Toshiba 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
