News Pulse IHE Europe: Connectathon Week in the capital of Europe

Summer is sadly departing and we are rushing headlong into autumn and preparations for the 2020 Connectathon Week that takes place March 23-27 at the perfectly-resourced Autoworld Centre, in the self-styled "Capital of Europe", Brussels.

The diary shows what is in store for the annual Europe-wide gathering that has grown exponentially out of the IHE-Europe Connectathon. It now encompasses a number of parallel events, taking full advantage of the Connectathon’s presence and the availability of 300 plus technical experts in interoperability from world-wide vendors, users and institutions.

The IHE-Europe Connectathon is an annual event focussed on testing conformity to IHE Profiles using validators to show interoperability between systems following clinical workflows. Several thousand transactions are validated using test tools and peer testing in the Connectathon’s controlled, supervised and neutral environment. Registration date information will soon appear so keep a watchful eye here.

March 24-25 sees the 4th IHE International World Summit, incorporating the IHE-Europe Symposium. The topic- Interoperability in eHealth - will connect stakeholder representatives and IHE enthusiasts, thought leaders on topics of international standards, interoperability, patient-centered care, information exchange and electronic health records. It will feature high-level keynote presentations, panel discussions and facilitate interaction with interoperability experts. For updates and details check here.

The IHE mHealth Plugathon, supporting the Mobile Apps community with hands-on workshops, provides the opportunity for innovative Apps to be developed, tested and effectively approved on the fly during this two-day parallel event - March 25-26.
