    IT Infrastructure Document Digital Signature (DSG) TI document published for another round of public comment. This profile is a Document Content Profile that provides general purpose methods of digitally signing of documents for communication and persistence. This method can be used within a Document Sharing infrastructure (e.g., XDS, XCA, XDM, XDR, and MHD). This second revision of the DSG supplement addresses the following: 1) Puts the profile into the current supplement template 2)Puts the profile into the current Document Content format 3)Adds Enveloping signature, which is especially useful when Document Sharing are not used. For example: RFD based output. 4)Adds details on how to use Detached signature for a SubmissionSet signature, which has been used in France. 5)Update the signature standards: XAdES specifically that now includes profiles for LongTerm signatures TI 2015-01-05 2015-03-13
    IT Infrastructure Cross-Community Document Reliable Interchanges (XCDR) Provides cross-domain capabilities to Provide and Register a set of Documents in a Cross-Community environment. It supports a Document source in one XDS Affinity Domain to route a request to store and persist in a specific designated remote community. Supports the reuse of the Provide and Register Set-b transaction with Web-Services as transport. The routing of the document set relies on an Initiating Gateway in the source affinity Domain (potentially supporting XDS) and a Responding Gateway in the target community identified by its homeCommunityId metadata value.

    Radiology Clinical Decision Support - Order Appropriateness New U.S. legislation mandates the use of clinical decision support (CDS) when ordering imaging exams. As of January 1, 2017, CMS will withhold payment unless the referring provider documents use of CDS in the claim for the exam. We must have standards for the creation of the required CDS data on the order and the movement of the data through to billing to correctly implement this new rule. HL7 has a messaging format for orders exchange between order placer and order filler. This is currently profiled in IHE Scheduled Workflow. CDS vendors currently use HL7 segments for their current data. A CDS Profile could present a standard way to capture the required data and send it through the rendering provider and on to the billing system. There is high market interest in standardizing, as today over 370 million ambulatory imaging studies are ordered annually in the U.S., plus another share of the over 400 million hospital imaging studies that are considered outpatient. The data-flow and record-keeping necessary to comply would be difficult to do correctly and cost-effectively without automation and integration. Referring and rendering providers, as well as the respective vendors, have shown interest in working on this. IHE Scheduled Workflow already carries many elements of an imaging order through the radiology workflow. It could be expanded to include new CDS data specific to the mandate. There are additional elements that would be helpful to add as well, such as receiving facility. Other data included in standards could be improved, such as exam priority. The Profiles on PIX and PDQ are very helpful in this as well. TI 2015-02-19 2015-06-12
    Radiology Web-based Image Capture (WIC) The Web-based Image Capture (WIC) Profile provides a simple, lightweight, mobile-friendly mechanism to encode and send captured images, videos and evidence documents from the mobile device to the Image Manager so that these objects can be easily integrated into the rest of the imaging workflow.  TI 2015-02-19 2015-04-21
    Radiology Radiology Remote Reading Workflow Cross-Enterprise or Community Diagnostic Image Sharing Services are increasingly part of the infrastructure landscape in the clinical community. Leading the way are IHE profiles and standards, such as XDS-I proving the infrastructure framework for image and document exchange. Cross-enterprise image sharing, beyond the initial step, has the capability to attain efficiencies and reduce cost at a macro-scale level: (a) Improve throughput of radiology departments by allowing any qualified radiologist in the community to read and report a study, (b) Align the number of resources (staff, equipment) with the needs of the community as opposed to considering individual hospitals only, (c) Facilitate assignment of studies to physicians that are best qualified to read them (e.g., a SPECT expert may be leveraged across the community), (d) Provide off-hours coverage by sharing radiologists' services off peak hours.
