IHE specifies Integration Profiles describing selected real-world use cases to facilitate the interoperability of healthcare information resources. While realizing a complex real world scenario, IHE Profiles are combined by grouping the related IHE actors. Grouping IHE Actors implies that the associated business processes (IHE Profiles) that the Actors are involved must be combined, that is, the choreography of the resulting collaborative business process must be determined by deciding on the execution sequence of transactions coming from different profiles. There are many IHE profiles and each user or vendor may support a different set of IHE Profiles that fits to its business need.
