What is an IHE Connectathon?

Connectathons are a cross-vendor, live, supervised and structured testing event where vendors test implementations of IHE Profiles defined in IHE's Technical Frameworks.

  • Tests are evaluated on interoperability and conformance to IHE Profiles.
  • Testing is overseen by our technical managers and team of trained monitors.

IHE Connectathons provide an unparalleled opportunity for interoperability testing and problem resolution. Listen to what our test participants are saying about the value of IHE Connectathons! View video >>
