Bochum 2016

The IHE-Europe Connectathon 2016 was held at the RuhrCongress Bochum on April 11-15, 2016.

The IHE-Europe Connectathon in Bochum, Germany was an outstanding success with 23 countries represented.


A few statistics:

  • 6 Domains tested including Radiology, IT-Infrastructure, Cardiology, Laboratory, Pharmacy and Patient Care Coordination.
  • 2 Projectathons:
    • 6 countries testing “epSOS specifications” for their national infrastructure through the latest version of the openNCP tools.
    • eFA: testing German extensions to XDS.b, ATNA and XCA Profiles involved 9 vendors who simultaneously participated in the Connectathon itself.
  • Gazelle Proxy and Gazelle Test Management Jboss7 version were used for testing, this ensured high stability, limited downtime and greater testing opportunities.

Alongside was an excellent programme of events including both international and national symposia, associated meetings and discussions.
