IHE Connectathon week in Rennes

Thursday September 28, 2022 at 3 pm CESTRoom 13
at the Couvent des Jacobins

The Digital Health and Health Information Exchange domains are undergoing rapid digital transformations, with new use cases emerging and innovative technologies being adopted. Thus, Gazelle is evolving accordingly by incorporating modern technologies and cloud architectures as well as addressing the new user needs such as HL7 FHIR testing, Web medical imaging, devices,  AI and many more. Gazelle is moving from an open source testing platform for IHE based health information exchange to an open ecosystem of connected open source test tools that will allow efficient testing for any digital transformation use case at any stage of maturity of the testing continuum.

To address the future challenges of eHealth testing, IHE Catalyst on behalf of IHE International is now setting the ground to create the Gazelle ecosystem to promote the use and innovation of the Gazelle testing suite. During the IHE Connectathon week in Rennes, IHE Catalyst organizes a hybrid workshop to allow the participation of all interested stakeholders.

During the workshop you will have the opportunity to understand how Gazelle is evolving, how it is used, what is the proposed governance model of the open ecosystem, as well as important testimonials of Gazelle early adopters and partners.

You will find below the current agenda of the workshop.
