"The experiences IHE has provided through the Connectathon's Monitor Program has benefited my daily work, and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to volunteer over the last 5 years. The hands on experiences, networking opportunities, and exposure to standards through the work of IHE at this event is unparalleled."

IHE USA Monitors Gain Real-World Experience

Each year, IHE USA recruits volunteer monitors to verify testing at the IHE North American Connectathon 2015, January 26 - 30, 2015, in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. Monitors use their skills and expertise to review and evaluate interoperability tests completed by participating organizations at the Connectathon.

As a monitor, you will gain exposure to the latest standards, cutting-edge technology, and the engineers that make it all possible. Our unique, practical learning environment provides the experience you need to grow professionally.

IHE USA's monitor program is a highly competitive and respected program that is vital to both the individual’s professional development and industry as a whole.
