Description: Consolidating storage in a healthcare enterprise lowers the total costs of ownership and provides a single manageable conduit for data aggregation and mining operations. However, administrators lack effective tools to manage cost accounting, let alone the ability to view their enterprise and verify efficiencies that quantify the quality of patient care being provided. In the PACS arena, the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) initiative is a consortium of radiology and IT experts that has developed communication and interoperability standards for radiology, cardiology, ophthalmology, pathology, laboratory radiation oncology and patient care devices (monitors). Efforts are on-going and the results are debatable; however, both organizations should be cornerstones to improving interoperability and communications because the ability to exchange data across disparate systems is a prerequisite to transparency.
