IHE Document Authors


Email by Mary Jungers as of January 16, 2013:

Dear IHE Community,

With a new publication cycle underway, following is some important information for authors of IHE documents:

  1. If you are authoring a new supplement, there is a new supplement template that is to be used. It is located on the ftp site at ftp://ftp.ihe.net/Document_templates/IHE_Technical_Framework_Templates/Technical_Framework_Supplement_Template/
  2. This is a reminder of the ftp directories that have been set up to maintain the Technical Framework documents and white papers. The directory structure is as follows with a readme file at the top level (and attached) with Instructions for Use:

Where to place documents submitted for publication

Committee members should place documents that are ready for publication in the correct domain folder of the CommitteeSubmitted ftp directory at ftp://ftp.ihe.net/DocumentPublication/CommitteeSubmitted/. Then, send me an email that a document has been submitted for publication. In the past, some of you may have sent documents to me directly or an email with links to the document, this is also acceptable (I will place a copy in the appropriate archive directory).

Where to retrieve documents that need to be updated (e.g., updating the public comment version for trial implementation)

It is important when you are updating a previously published supplement, Technical Framework or white paper, that you retrieve the most recent published Word version from the CurrentPublished ftp directory at ftp://ftp.ihe.net/DocumentPublication/CurrentPublished/ and use this version to make any changes. (For example, if you are an author of a document currently published for public comment, you would retrieve the document from the CurrentPublished ftp directory to make changes for the TI version. This also applies when updating a document based on approved Change Proposals.) If you do not retrieve the document from this ftp directory, you may not be updating the most recent version and may need to redo your work. When performing edits to an already published document, please do not retrieve the document from your computer or a domain’s ftp site.

Feel free to contact me directly with your questions. (Note: This directory structure has been in place since July of 2010. Documents published before this time may not be available here. Please contact me if you are unable to locate a document.)

Best regards,
Mary Jungers
