In 2008, IHE is continuing the successful series of annual interoperability demonstrations in Australia with a series of events that will enable e-health systems vendors, purchasers, users, healthcare professionals, etc. to:
• Learn and understand the concepts and practice of IHE • Participate in the "Connectathon" & Interoperability Showcase 2008 • Observe and prepare for full participation in 2009
Learning and Understanding IHE
We held two education events in June in Sydney that
- gave an easy introduction, history and practice of IHE - provided in-depth knowledge of Cross-Enterprise Document Sharing (XDS)
Free "Introduction to IHE" Seminar Sydney (NICTA) - Thursday, June 12, 2008, 10:00 - 12:30 More Information (past event - registration closed)
IHE XDS Course Sydney (NICTA) - Friday, June 13, 2008, 9:30 - 17:00
Participation in this program will provide vendors with an unique opportunity to test the messaging interfaces of their products against a wide variety of other message senders and receivers. This year, IHE will be focussing on Radiology (especially portable media) and Pathology messaging to comply with the NPAAC guidelines. A certified message testing lab (AHML) will provide on-site support to help resolve compatibility issues and undertake the official conformance testing. The companies and products that pass the IHE conformance tests will be issued a certificate of compliance and receive widespread publicity.
