The Connectathon, a five-day ‘connectivity marathon’ for testing the interoperability of health information systems, proved once again that Orchestra fulfils all criteria specified by the IHE. The IHE is a world-wide initiative that enables Healthcare IT system users and suppliers to work together to enable interoperability of IT systems.
It does this through:
- Careful definition of specific healthcare tasks (use cases).
- Identification of the information and processes required to support those tasks.
- Specification of the necessary information exchange using existing standards and the processing to be performed.
- Annual testing of supplier systems for conformance with the specifications – the Connectathon – is all about evidence based interoperability.
