Summary of course content: The ITK describes how one can leverage HL7/IHE standards, and Spine Mini Services, to provide local interoperability. This training course focuses on the two workflow-areas detailed in the ITK: patient demographics and correspondence. It also covers the infrastructure that is used to exchange the messages or documents that are part of these two workflow-areas.
