Registration Open for 2023 IHE-Europe Connectathon
Registration is open for the 2023 Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) European Connectathon taking place Sept. 25-29 in Rennes, France. During this five-day event, vendors will complete real-time implementation testing of IHE interoperability specification in a supervised and structured environment. One focus of this year’s European Connectathon will be testing IHE profiles for AI in radiology. Participants can also take advantage of the IHE Experience Days occurring during the Connectathon week. Visit Connectathon.IHE-Europe.net to learn more.
IHE to Publish New Radiology Workflow Profiles for 2023
IHE Radiology developed two new interoperability specifications (IHE profiles) this year designed to streamline radiology workflow. They will be published for trial implementation later this summer and tested at IHE Connectathons starting this fall.
IHE addresses interoperability gaps within and across domains in health care, including radiology. RSNA has sponsored the IHE Radiology domain since 1998 and continues to support its ongoing work.
