   June - September 2009
 Connectathon: Who should apply?
Any company producing systems that could
benefit from integration capabilities defined in the
IHE Technical Frameworks
Users and consultants have a vital role as
advisors and implementers of IHE, but do not
participate directly in the Connectathon
 Recruiting Connectathon Monitors

                                                What do you get?

Access to IHE Testing Tools and test plans
Testing in controlled and validated environment with oversight of
Technical Project Managers
Objective success criteria for each actor
Structured process with opportunities for additional cross-vendor
Build relationships with industry peers
Early validation of interoperability standards specified by HITSP and
soon to be certified by CCHIT
Promotion of successful results in sponsor educational and outreach

Interoperability Showcases

Do application fees include demos?
No. IHE demonstrations, including the HIMSS
Interoperability Showcases charge fees
separately from the Connectathon
 However, Connectathon participation is a pre-requisite
  for HIMSS Interoperability Showcase
 Demonstrations have separate applications and
  additional requirements

                           Submitting Application

Application to be issued August 28, due Sept. 30,

 Support cost of process for sponsoring
 Provide value for participants proportional to their

                            What is a “system”?

Any combination of IHE Actors that could be
delivered as a product
 Cramming too many actors on one system makes
  life difficult for you and testing partners
 Sponsors and project managers exercise
  judgment as to allowable combinations

                                 What is a “Domain”?
Clinical or operational field with a particular set of
interoperability issues
   Cardiology

               How do we manage? Gazelle

Web-based tool used to manage a Connectathon
 Register the systems you will test (profiles/actors)
 Determine your testing requirements
 Submit your pre-Connectathon test results
 Enter configuration for your system (ports/URLs…)
 Submit your Conformance Statement
 Register the people who will attend
 Find your test partners
 Manage your testing during Connectathon week

                   First - Decide what to test
A large organization (Siemens) will register
multiple systems
 MR modality
 CT modality
 XDS Registry
 EHR system (in XDS land)

Smaller organizations will likely register a single

There are base fees and per-system charges
 Read the fine print in the sponsor’s Policies for all of
  the rules

                   Registration: Preparation

Read the Connectathon Policies & Fact Sheet
(available July 1)
Pay special attention to what constitutes a system
and how you group actors/profiles
If you do not understand the rules or the tool, contact
a Project Manager before/during the registration
period for clarification
If you get this wrong now, you will spend the next 3-5
months wasting your engineering time writing
software you will not use
You will also not develop the software you need for
testing or demonstration

                          Registration: Gazelle

Enter organization & system details

 Enter info about marketing and technical contacts

 Enter the individual system(s) you want to test

 For each system, you enter the combinations of
  actors, profiles, and options that will be tested for
  that system

    We Do Not Add Actors After Close

We immediately start making Connectathon
decisions after registration closes
Within a week of registration close, we will
close off profiles that have poor subscription
Showcase decisions made on the basis of
your registration
You cannot tell us in December you want to
add something
Think of this as placing an order

Registration: Paperwork & Payment

  Print Registration Form
   Gazelle will generate PDF with list of systems and
    charge information

   Print the form, sign it, send a check to the address
    on the form

  The printed form and check must arrive by
  the close of registration deadline

  Sponsors will generate an invoice at your
  request. Follow up with the sponsors
                         Project Manager Interview
First-time participants must schedule an interview
in Sep/Oct with a Project Manager
 Ensure your Connectathon registration is in order
   •   There are limits on the number of actors/profiles you can register in one
   •   We are keeping people from signing up for too much and then failing
   •   There are dependencies between profiles that get missed
   •   This is an annual problem that requires attention

 Ensure you understand the process & timeline
 Ensure you can find pre-Connectathon tests & tools
 Answer your questions

                      Interview Preparation

Interview Form
 A set of questions to ensure you have the
  information you need to succeed
   •   Do you know what your manager signed you up for?
   •   Do you know how to find your required
       pre-Connectathon tests?
   •   Do you know where the tools are?
   •   ….

Email completed form to Project Manager
after you complete Connectathon registration

                     Registration: Showcase
Project Managers are aware of showcase
demos, but do not manage them.
You need to contact your regional
 RSNA, AAO, HIMSS in the US
 IHE Europe will delegate to national IHE groups:
 IHE-France
 IHE-Germany, and many others

There are separate fees.
There are separate rules. These rules are
written by the regional organization.

                                   After Registration

Now that your marketing department has
committed the engineering group to this

The engineers should read the
requirements/specifications in the IHE
Technical Frameworks

Actually, you should do that before you

   Pre-Connectathon (MESA) Tests
Project Managers publish
pre-Connectathon unit tests you run in your
lab using test tools we provide

These are part of the IHE process and a
requirement for Connectathon participation

There is a published deadline for submitting
positive test results (not that you tried, but that
you successfully completed the tests)

Results are uploaded into Gazelle and graded
by Project Managers

               Configuration Information
Project Managers will assign fixed IP addresses
to your computers
You will need to review configuration
information in Gazelle (port numbers, DICOM
titles, Web services URLs) and complete
There is a published deadline for this
If you fail to do this, your test partners will
consider your company a poor candidate for
future collaborative work
 You will waste much time during the Connectathon

                  Conformance Documents

DICOM systems require a DICOM conformance
 Load this into Gazelle

IHE Integration Statements (optional):
 Companies may load a link into Gazelle

                                    Staff Registration

Use Gazelle to register individual staff
members who will attend the Connectathon

Understand the rules for the number of
staffers you can register before you trigger
extra fees

There is a deadline for this

If you do not register staff members, no entry,
no lunch, no testing

                    Connectathon Summary
Week-long testing event
Required tests for each profile/actor
You execute each test with 3 peer systems
Connectathon monitors examine results
Cooperative efforts to debug problems and work
towards success
Opportunity to find problems in products and in
the profiles
Showcase demonstration practice

                            Connectathon Tests
Each system is given a list of tests to complete
For most of the week, you manage your own
schedule and perform tests as you can manage
them (in the order you choose)
For some parts of the Connectathon, the
managers will assign specific partners or specific
work for a time period
The event is a combination of scheduled events
and unscheduled test time (not free time)

                  Setting Your Expectations

This is an engineering testing activity that you
need to manage properly.
You might not complete testing for all registered
 Some tests you run will not be examined by monitors
 Sponsors do not guarantee you will complete your tests
Your engineers may need to remove
actors/profiles during the week

                            Connectathon Output

An IHE web site that lists that you passed tests
for actor/profile pairs
 We do not publish failures or work you did not complete
 You are not “certified”
 We do not guarantee conformance
 We do not imply you are better than your competitor
  because you registered for more work

Your ticket to participate in IHE demonstrations

                                                  Email Lists
There is one Google-groups email list for
Connectathon-related announcements from
the Project Managers and sponsors
 You can subscribe yourself and as many colleagues as you
XDS implementers ask questions and share
There will be several email lists for showcase
 Project Managers will work with sponsors to publish a list,
  but we do not manage those lists.

                     You Are Responsible …
You are responsible for all requirements for
your actor/profile pairs.

There is a separate WebEx presentation on
how to interpret the Technical Framework.

We do not test systems where the participant
wants to do half of the work.
 You need to implement for an actor/profile pair to
  receive credit for that pair. You choose one or
  more actors in a profile (no requirement to
  implement all actors in a profile).

This is pass / fail. There is no partial credit.
