Call for Proposals in the IHE Eye Care Domain

Dear IHE Community:

We wanted to let you know about a call for proposals and would invite new proposals for Eye Care:
Interested parties are invited to submit proposals for new Profiles in IHE Eye Care. Proposals will be considered for development in the 2011-2012 development cycle of the IHE Eye Care Domain and are due by November 28, 2011.

Proposals should follow the Brief Proposal Template. Submit completed proposals to

The template is available as a Wiki page at

The critical questions the proposal should address are:
  • What is the problem and how does it affect clinical practice (use case)?
  • How should things look in practice if it were fixed?
  • What specific pieces of standards could be used to solve the problem?
It is strongly recommended that the proposal include the name of a candidate editor for the profile.  If possible, also give some indication of the business case for solving the problem.

Please address any questions about proposal submission process to
The Eye Care Planning Committee will select on Dec 2, a "Short List" of proposals for detailed consideration. Detailed proposals for those selected will be due Dec 16. The Eye Care Technical Committee will complete an evaluation of the technical feasibility and effort required by mid-January.
The current plan is that the Eye Care Planning Committee will vote on the final selection at a meeting the week of January 20 2012.


Best regards,
