IPS testing at the IHE-Europe Connectathon

IHE-Europe is delighted to advise that International Patient Summary (IPS) Profile testing can be performed during the upcoming Online European Connectathon, 14-18 June 2021.

CEN standard EN 17269:2019 has been created by a joint project of CEN/TC 251 and HL7® to cover the requirements for exchanging a core, essential dataset of healthcare data to support the patient’s continuity of care, whenever and wherever it is needed. The International Patient Summary (IPS), as it is termed, is accompanied by HL7 FHIR® and IHE CDA implementation guides.


IHE Connectathon Monitors 2020

IHE-Europe is indebted to the IHE 2020 Connectathon Monitors who have provided professional expert input, advice and monitoring skills at the last annual IHE-Europe Connectathon.

Drawn from the ranks of industry interoperability experts, the user community, independent interoperability consultants, government IT specialists and advisers, national initiative and standards bodies, test houses and IHE interoperability experts.

Without them there would simply be no Connectathon! IHE-Europe salutes its global team of monitors and thanks them for their dedicated hard work and unbiased empathetic support to the vendor community.


IHE-Europe Connectathon WEEK 2021

IHE-Europe 2021 Connectathon fully ONLINE



Despite the efforts made by IHE Czech and IHE-Europe to organise the IHE-Europe Connectathon 2021 in the Czech Republic, it turned out that the Covid-19 development did not allow the planning of a safe face-to-face event in June 2021.

Considering this situation as well as the successful Connectathon ONLINE premiere in 2020, the IHE-Europe Steering Committee decided to move the Connectathon to a fully ONLINE event in 2021 again.

The IHE-Europe Connectathon 2017 was held at the Maritime Port in Venice, Italy from 3-7 April 2017.

With around 1000 attendees at the Connectathon and the many parallel events, the Connectathon 2017 surpassed even the highest of guesstimates.

Key facts and figures:


A Projectathon is a testing session dedicated to a specific deployment project using a set of IHE Profiles in their interoperability specifications.

The organisation leading the project will have both test plans and customised test tools, used by the IHE Gazelle testing management. These define the test criteria, enable the tests and verify that the systems / solutions of the various vendors have exactly implemented the appropriate specifications.
