ALERT®s participation in the North-American Connectathon in Chicago, between February 23 and 27, 2009, was a success.
The ALERT team participated in this event with four different products; their capacity to interoperate with other facilities clinical systems, using standards and technologies known worldwide, was intensely tested:
- ALERT® Audit Record Repository;
- ALERT® PIX new Patient Demographics Query module in HL7 v3.0;
- ALERT® EDIS Content Consumer new XDS.b profile;
- ALERT® XDS Registry.
HITSP profiles corresponding to IHE profiles were also tested during this event. Besides the IHE validations, ALERT® successfully underwent tests on the corresponding HITSP profiles, thus reinstating that it meets HITSP requirements for interoperability.
This event was also a rehearsal for the public demonstration of interoperability (Interoperability Showcase) taking place in Chicago between April 5 and 8. By passing the required tests, ALERT® EDIS ensured its participation in HIMSS09.
Catherine Glenz (Vice-President of ALERTs Clinical Operations) was invited by IHE to integrate this events organization team as a scene manager in charge of managing participants regarding the various planned interoperability scenarios for the Interoperability Showcase at HIMSS09. Catherine Glenz will integrate the docents team: she will be responsible for guiding visitors throughout interoperability demonstrations.
