HIMSS19 Face to Face

Cleveland, OH January 24 10am-5pm and January 25 9am-12pm

    For all participants in connected demonstration it is required to attend a Face to Face event in Cleveland, OH. The Face to Face allows all of our vendors the opportunity to not only work with each other but also with our technical project managers and graphic designer in person at a critical time before conference. During the day and a half, you are able to meet with our whole planning staff to solve any problems you have. Each use case will meet and perform a run through of their demonstration as if they were at conference. This allows us to work through any concerns or problems with enough time in advance to troubleshoot and create solutions. What this creates is a smooth move in process at conference, and ensures a quality demonstration.

Location: We will be located at the Huntington Cleveland Convention Center, in Cleveland OH. Our good friends at IHE USA allow us to use some of their space during the IHE USA Connectathon. This kindness allows us a space that has enough wireless and power to run your demonstration as if we were at conference.

Hotel Information: There is discounted hotel rates for individuals attending the Connectathon and the Face to Face testing.

Fees vary by date and badge type; Visit IHE USA’s website to register for your participant badges online here: www.iheusa.org/badge-registration.

Do I need to register for the IHE Connectathon or just the Face to Face? In order to participate in a connected demonstration, you must use an exchange standard in order to share your information, such as a HL7 Profile, IHE Profile*, DICOM, IEEE, Continua, etc. We do not allow proprietary exchanges in the connected demonstrations.  

  • If you are demonstrating an IHE profile you must register, attend and successfully pass the IHE Connectathon (separate fee required). Your system must have tested that profile at a Global IHE Connectathon within 12 months priors to conference. More details on how to register for the IHE USA Connectathon can be found here
  • If you plan to exchange with a different standard than IHE you would only need to attend the face to face, which is a two day event. Details on how to register for day passes for the Face to Face can be found here.
