IHE USA adds four new Plug-a-thon tracks to the IHE NA Connectathon. The new tracks are focused on innovative health IT technologies including mHealth, Blockchain - Healthcare, Devices on FHIR and the Internet of Things - Medical. Each Plug-a-thon track will explore and create new capabilities for products to interoperate with each other within or across IT realms of the healthcare ecosystem. 

IHE USA’s Plug-a-thons provide a venue for connectivity options and opportunities to be discussed and developed by partner systems for targeted use cases, plus introductory presentations to increase awareness of existing health IT standards that can be leveraged. The Plug-a-thon tracks will run January 16-18, 2018. The specific dates for each track are listed below.
