Connectathon Registration Open until October 5

Registration for the IHE North America Connectathon 2013 is open until October 5. The event takes place in Chicago, Jan. 28 - Feb. 2, 2013. The Connectathon provides developers of health IT the opportunity to test the interoperability of their systems and conformance to IHE Profiles in an organized and supervised testing environment. In the 2012 North American Connectathon more than 150 systems from over 100 participating organizations were tested and more than 3500 successful tests were performed and verified. This year testing will include IHE profiles from nine domains, including  many capabilities required for certification under the US Office of the National Coordinator's "Meaningful Use" program, and for the first time, testing of the document templates recently published by the Consolidated CDA project.
