Connectathon/Showcase events in 2017

IHE Australia and HISA announce a call for expressions of interest from healthcare IT vendors and professional healthcare organisations in New Zealand, Australia and the Asia/Pacific   for participation in the Connectathon/Showcase events in 2017.

IHE Connectathons are cross-vendor, live, supervised and structured testing events where medical software industry members test implementations of IHE and other standards profiles. The Connectathon also serves as the pre-requisite development and testing ground for the Interoperability @ HIC 17 Showcase which occurs 6 weeks later. IHE Showcases are practical demonstrations of connectivity using live applications connected over a local network, following a "script" that showcases both vendor capability as well as the value of interoperability to patient care. This event is run in the exhibition hall at the HIC where in the past has reached the majority of conference attendees.

In 2017 a key focus will be medical device connectivity, along with IHE on FHIR, in addition to the full range of IHE and HL7 profiles supporting Health Information Exchange and individual health sector workflow.  Kickoff Connectathon/Showcase Webinar   Select the date you wish to attend on the GoToMeeting Site)
