Since August 2016, ICCAS is an official member of the ‘Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise’ (IHE) Initiative. The initiative is intended to improve interoparablity in the health care sector. It is organized in domains. ICCAS is mainly active in the ‘Surgery’ domain. In each domain IHE-profiles are assigned to specific problems. The profiles define which people and activities may be necessary for the problem-solving and which existing standards are used. ICCAS computer scientist Erik Schreiber has been recently appointed to the Technical Committee of the ‘Surgery’ domain. The Committee primarily examines new profile proposals. Erik Schreiber also works on profiles.
