IHE Connectathon

Next week I will be attending the IHE 2010 North America Connectathon. During this week long event, hundreds of software engineers will be testing the interoperability of various healthcare information technologies. Last year I blogged during the first four days of connectathon.  This year I'll be starting on Sunday (load-in), and will try to report from the floor the entire week (through Friday).

For a little flavor, you can see what I wrote last year:
If you happen to be in the Chicago area next week, there is a one day conference that you can attend which which if you've never been is a must-have experience.  The presentations are very good, but where you really learn about what it takes for interoperability is in the tour of the Connectathon.  I hope to see you there.  See below for details on this conference.
