IHE Connectathons Europe 2020
November 2 - November 6
A five-day ‘connectivity marathon’ for testing the interoperability of health information systems.
The IHE-Europe Connectathon provides a unique opportunity for vendors to test their products’ interoperability in a structured environment with peer vendors. Participants test against multiple vendors using real-world clinical scenarios following IHE Integration Profiles specifications.
The annual IHE Connectathon affords all companies, large and small, the opportunity to test their own products, across a variety of domains, including Radiology, Cardiology, Pathology, Patient Care Devices, Patient Care Coordination, Pharmacy, Laboratory, and IT Infrastructure, along with those of their peer vendors.
Introducing testing of the new Dental Domain with the Integration Profile Secure Exchange of Dental Information (SEDI)
The last few years have seen national, regional, and hospital tender procedures demand current independent demonstrations of IHE profile implementation competence by vendors, and an increasing number of buyers are turning to the IHE Product Registry and Connectathon results in pages, which list Connectathon results, as part of their decision making process.
IHE-Europe has published a Whitepaper on Connectathon, which explains what the Connectathon is and how it is done.
The Belgian eHealth Interoperability Day will occur as foreseen, although aimed at (a limited number of) Belgian participants.
As the host country for this year’s Connectathon Week, IHE-Belgium, together with lifetech.brussels, Abrumet, and Agoria are organizing a national seminar that will bring together healthcare actors. High-end speakers will highlight the importance and benefits of using international standards and IHE Profiles to allow interoperability of IT Healthcare systems. There will be parallel sessions with a program that will address the concerns of hospitals, vendors, start-ups, eHealth, and mHealth software developers (mobile, first line), plus plenty of networking opportunities.
Explore also the program of the eHealth Plugathon, happening on the previous days November 3-4, 2020: all eHealth and mHealth developers can experience hands-on learning workshops on international standards (IHE MHD, IHE XDS, HL7 FHIR, …) and the Belgian, Brussels, and Flemish eHealth ecosystem.
