Connectathon Conference 2015

Wednesday, January 28, 2015 from 7:30 am to 6:30 pm Eastern

The Global Center for Health Innovation
and HIMSS Innovation Center
One St. Clair Avenue NE
Cleveland, Ohio 44114

The Connectathon Conference is a one day, educational and networking event built upon the IHE North American (NA) Connectathon 2015: health IT’s largest standards-based interoperability testing event that is accelerating adoption in North America and globally.

The Path Forward to Standards-Based, Sustainable Interoperability.

While EHR usage has increased significantly, the interoperability necessary to achieve continuity of care, population health, patient management, and clinical quality improvement is not yet realized.  Interoperable HIT has made strides in many areas like ePrescribing, but widespread progress remains slow.

The IHE North American Connectathon Conference 2015 will explore these challenges, with special focus on the emerging ONC Interoperability Roadmap and advancing health information exchange.  Thought leaders that are advancing local, regional and national interoperability efforts will explore what they have learned, best practices, and offer guidance on how to leverage innovative technologies and programs that can take interoperable health IT and workflow to the next level, further realizing the value of health IT.
