Frédéric Laurent

Marseille Public University Hospital System
Involved with IHE for 6 years

I am a co-chair for users in IHE France. Moreover I am the chair of the French group IHE ITI (especially on the PAM profiles). I am involved in most IHE discussions in France and co-represent IHE in the national association called interop’santé.

I am working in a very large hospital (3500 beds) and I am in charge of all the data exchanges between applications. Thus, IHE profiles are a day-to-day need. By standardizing these exchanges with IHE profiles, solution providers have an open and clean way to resolve integration issues. This leverages deliveries of software and makes health information more available for the physicians. Interoperability of systems and IHE must be a strong concern for everyone in the healthcare area.
