Annual IHE-Europe Connectathon, Luxembourg 20-24 April 2015

The 2015 IHE-Europe Connectathon, organised in cooperation with IHE-Luxembourg and will take place in Luxembourg on 20-24 April 2015.

The IHE-Europe Connectathon provides a unique opportunity for vendors to test the interoperability of their  products 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 includingRadiology, 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 integration profile Secure Exchange of Dental Information (SEDI)
The last two 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 pages which list Connectathon results, as part of their decision making process.
IHE-Europe published a Whitepaper on Connectathon, which explains in detail what the Connectathon is and how it is done.
The 15th Connectathon organized concurrently with the Congress Med@Tel which will make announcements on "Pharmacy and m / eHealth". Here, for your reference, the titles, authors and abstracts:
