The 13th annual IHE-Europe Connectathon will take place from 15–19 April 2013, in Istanbul, Turkey. IHE Connectathons provide the exclusive opportunity to test the interoperability and connectivity of healthcare IT systems. The 2013 edition is expected to draw participation from across Europe, with more than 90 companies and 300 engineers. The hosting of the next event in the iconic city of Istanbul is significant since it connects Europe and Asia, with organisers anticipating widespread social interaction.
Besides the testing event, Projectathon and many side events and daily round-tables and seminars on specific healthcare topics will also be held in a waterfront congress centre by the famous Golden Horn. Guided tours will also be organised during the week on demand.
