The IHE Connectathon is the healthcare IT industry's largest interoperability testing event designed to encourage and support compliance with standards, electronic health record system connectivity and the interoperable exchange of patient health information. The testing event brings together over 150 systems from over 100 organizations.

"We are dedicated to supporting our clients with the highest levels of interoperability," noted Ed Daihl, CEO, Surgical Information Systems. "By participating in and passing integration testing at the IHE Connectathon for the third straight year, we continue to advance the capabilities of our clients by ensuring their perioperative system supports the efficient flow of hospital data."

SIS completed Connectathon testing for the following IHE actors in one or more IHE integration profiles demonstrating successful interoperability for each of the profiles critical to achieving an actionable and effective information exchange between a perioperative system and other hospital information systems including:

  • Alarm Communication Management (ACM)
  • Audit Trail and Node Authentication (ATNA)
  • Consistent Time (CT)
  • Device Enterprise Communication (DEC)
  • Patient Administration and Management (PAM)
  • Patient Identifier Cross-Reference (PIX)
  • Cross Enterprise Document Sharing (XDS.b)
  • Exchange of Personal Health Record Content (XPHR, XDS-MS) (C32) for Content Creator and Content Consumer

The Connectathon is a precursor to SIS' participation in demonstrating interoperability at next month's Healthcare Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Interoperability Showcase. Visit SIS at HIMSS booth #5963 and at the Interoperability Showcase, February 20-24 in Orlando, FL.
