Connectathon 2013 brought healthcare interoperability to the edge of Europe and attracted new participants from the Middle East, as suggested by this year's theme, "Connect where the continents meet."
This intensive five-day 'connectivity marathon' drew together companies implementing specifications developed by Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE), providing an opportunity to test their applications with systems from other vendors. Last year's IHE-Europe Connectathon in Bern, Switzerland showed a record attendance of 520 participants and 85 companies for 2,800 interoperability tests among 120 medical information systems.
Organized by IHE-Turkey and IHE-Europe, Connectathon 2013 was jointly sponsored by the Turkish Medical Informatics Association, the Turkish Society of Radiology (TurkRAD), and the Association for Medical Imaging Diagnosis and Treatment Technologies (TıpGörDer). Learn more »
