IRAP Scholarship is Now Closed

Since 2007, IHE USA has offered scholarships to support organizations that want to participate in the IHE North American (NA) Connectathon.  The IHE Interoperability Research Award Program or IRAP is for participating organizations that are advancing interoperability by implementing new IHE profiles in key, strategic areas.   The registration fee of $8,700 for one system is waived for each organization that wins an IRAP Scholarship.  Awardees are responsible for the cost of the IHE Connectathon badges, hotel, and travel expenses. The IRAP application for the IHE NA Connectathon 2019 will open in Fall 2018.
