Healthcare Standards: Historical Links & Videos
On our 30th anniversary it seems appropriate to review the long history of IHMSDO and its main predecessors. A brief overview of the history of IHMSDO can be found on our Mission and History page.
- Health Level 7 (1987 - 2012)
- DICOM (1983 - 2014)
- IHE (1998 - 2013)
- SDO-JIC I (2008 - 2010)

Dilip Kanwar, the recently elected Chair of IHMSDO, said "as a volunteer organisation we really value the input provided by those that participated in the past as well as the work done by our current volunteers. Seen in the light of today, our predecessors accomplished quite a lot given the limited resources. We need to be aware of our history - not to be humbled by it, but to understand how IHMSDO became to be what it is today."
