International Testing Successful Print

The ifa team has successfully passed the IHE Connectathons test in Chicago. IHE stands for  „Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise“ and represents the most important standardization organizations for Health IT in the world. As a longstanding member of the IHE Planning Committee , ifa group is involved intensively in the advancement of standards in ophthalmology, such as HL7 and DICOM.


Peter Scherer, Chief Developer of ifa united i-tech Inc. in Fort Lauderdale, Florida: “”The demands for data transferal in medical technology are increasing rapidly. With IHE we have the opportunity to develop standardized interfaces and test them for consistency and quality with other providers. This has substantial advantages for the users, and therefore IHE Qualifications will belong to the most important decision criteria for pitches for large international Health IT projects. However, the investments in IHE development are so high, that only large and financially strong companies will be able to keep up.”


The ifa Team will present the connectivity of ifa software on the Congress of American Academy of Ophthalmology in New Orleans (November 16th – 19th ) on the IHE Booth 3851.
