IHE Australia and HISA have announced a call for Expressions of Interest from healthcare IT vendors and professional healthcare organisations 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 is also the pre-requisite development and testing ground for the Interoperability @ HIC 17 Showcase which occurs six weeks after.

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.

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 ihe-logohealth sector workflow.
