Validating our products at the IHE Connectathon is a vital part of our commitment to developing and implementing the highest standards of interoperability
Panama City, FL (PRWEB) February 2, 2011
iSirona, a provider of simplified solutions for medical device connectivity, today announced it passed all interoperability requirements tested at the 12th annual IHE North America Connectathon, held Jan. 17-21 in Chicago. Success at Connectathon reinforces industry approval of iSirona software and technology; in fact, iSirona solutions will now be featured in the exclusive HIMSS Interoperability Showcase at the organization’s annual conference next month.
“Validating our products at the IHE Connectathon is a vital part of our commitment to developing and implementing the highest standards of interoperability,” explains iSirona CEO Dave Dyell. “It’s inspiring to see industry leaders coming together to further standards-based connectivity efforts.”
IHE is a global healthcare integration initiative to promote data exchange among physician practices, hospitals and public health institutions. As the healthcare IT industry’s largest interoperability testing event, the IHE Connectathon provides healthcare IT companies with a structured environment to test their solutions’ ability to communicate with different IHE profiles. At the 2011 Connectathon, approximately 100 participating organizations tested roughly 200 such profiles.
iSirona successfully validated its software-based medical device integration solution, which can be utilized with devices from any manufacturer, as part of the Device Enterprise Communication (DEC) Integration Profile. The IHE DEC Technical Framework defines specific implementations of established standards to achieve integration goals that promote appropriate sharing of medical information to support optimal patient care. Validating conformance with this standard ensures iSirona's DeviceConX software supports the communication of vendor-independent, multi-modality patient care device data to enterprise applications using consistent semantics.
Following its success at Connectathon, iSirona will demonstrate its IHE-compliant connectivity solution in the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase at the HIMSS11 Annual Conference this Feb. 20-24 in Orlando. Visitors will be able to see firsthand how iSirona achieves interoperability with various devices and systems. iSirona also will be showcasing its solution at its company booth #6083.
