More than 400 participants gathered in Pisa, Italy from April 11 - 15, 2011, for the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) European Connectathon. During the event, which featured a diverse programme of activities in parallel to the primary focus of intensive testing of health information systems, more than 75 companies and institutions conducted over 2,200 tests of IHE integration profiles. These help assure interoperability in exchanges of patient records and medical information. For the first time the Connectathon in Pisa also hosted a parallel testing event called Projectathon where 13 EU Member States exchanged patient information to prepare for a large-scale cross-border pilot programme.
