An industry expert in database design, clinical data integration and interoperability, heartbase president Nicholas Gawrit has been working with the IHE (Integrating Healthcare Enterprise) Cardiology Planning and Technical Committee since 2009, on which he currently serves as co-chair of the Cardiology Technical Committee. While Mr. Gawrit has contributed on various IHE profiles, in 2012, he was co-author of the IHE CRC (Cath Report Content) Profile and in 2013-14, lead author on the IHE EPRC-IE (Electrophysiology Report Content) Profile. The EPRC-IE Content Profile includes the following procedures: ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator) and pacemakers for implant/explant devices. Currently, heartbase, Inc. is working with UW Medicine and the ACC on a TAVR Registry Submission Profile which is slated for release January 2016.

Recently, The American College of Cardiology (ACC) partnered with IHE to address issues specific to clinical workflow, information sharing and improved patient care in the clinical domain of cardiology and to utilize the IHE framework for standards-based interoperability of health information technology systems. Mr. Gawrit authored the ACC-IHE supplement, IHE Technical Framework 5.0, that describes the mechanism used to harvest and transmit data to the CathPCI Registry® for quality reporting. IHE Technical Framework 5.0 was released in April for public comment.

IHE is an initiative by healthcare professionals to improve the way computer systems in healthcare share information. Systems developed in accordance with IHE communicate with one another better, are easier to implement, enabling care providers to use information more effectively and conform to key interoperability capabilities in emerging Meaningful Use Stage 2 certification requirements.
