IHE-Europe NEWS Pulse
Dear Members and Friends, 

The 15th European Connectathon is now just over a month away, so this News Pulse looks at the important role played by the volunteer Monitors that is vital to the success of the Connectathon.

Their role is to assist the Connectathon Manager oversee testing, plus some specific actions:
  • Deploying their specialist expertise in an IHE Domain or set of IHE Profiles.
  • Verifying test results, recording them in the Gazelle management system.
  • Clarifying technical or provider requirements, when necessary.
  • Supporting the Connectathon process, working with participants towards positive outcomes.
  • As a neutral arbiter with no organisational affiliation with those participating.
  • Assisting, sometimes leading, Tours of the Connectathon floor for VIP parties – for further information on VIP Tours.
Lynn Felhofer, US IHE Connectathon and Technical Project Manager for Radiology & IT Infrastructure Domains – commented at the IHE-Europe Connectathon 2014 that she could look at things more objectively as a Europe monitor and found it a great plus that all companies had the chance to improve the quality of their software and problem solve with fellow vendors.
Monitors are drawn from major health IT professional societies, provider organisations, technical consultants who have worked in the IT industry and also from retired and ex participant organisation staff who have all important experience – they are often internationally recognised experts in their field.

The IHE-Europe Connectathon 2015 in Luxembourg is fully resourced, if you would like to volunteer as a Monitor for future Connectathons in Europe or USA 
contact Eric PoiseauIHE-Europe Technical Manager.
We look forward to seeing you in Luxembourg for the Connectathon 20-24 April and for the Conformity Assessment sessions running alongside during 22-24 April.
