Fraunhofer FOKUS at the IHE-Europe Connectathon 2013 in Istanbul

News from Apr. 12, 2013

On behalf of ETSI, Fraunhofer FOKUS will be participating in the 13th IHE-Europe Connectathon 2013, held in Istanbul/Turkey, April 15 - 19. This annual European testing event for healthcare IT interoperability will bring together companies implementing specifications developed by IHE (Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise) and provides them an opportunity to test their applications with systems from other vendors.

ETSI, assisted by Fraunhofer FOKUS’ eHealth Interoperability Lab with its HL7 test solution, enables advanced testing of established and upcoming Healthcare Information Systems for conformance and interoperability. ETSI and Fraunhofer FOKUS will take part with a TTCN-3 based test tool for testing IHE PIX and PDQ profiles compliant applications.

At recent Connectathon events from 2010 to 2012, Fraunhofer FOKUS supported ETSI with its test solution and proved its capabilities in detecting and analyzing implementation errors and interoperability problems in electronic health record (EHR) systems. In preparation for this event, remote testing is setup online. Interested parties are cordially invited to take advantage of the ETSI PlugtestsTM IHE PIX Test System. The aim is to support vendors in preparation for the IHE-Europe Connectathon 2013.
