The conference is formerly known as the International Affiliates Meeting and after we have met in Dresden (Germany) in 2000, then Reading (United Kingdom), Melbourne (Australia), Daegu (Korea), Acapulco (Mexico) and last year in Taipei (Taiwan) we will now meet late August in Cologne.
IHIC 2006 is hosted by HL7 Germany and co-organized by HL7 Germany and HL7 the Netherlands.
In contrast to regular Working Group Meetings, this conference focuses on the exchange of international experiences with HL7 Version 3:
- Projects, small ones or large scale, implementing HL7 Version 3 messages or documents - what lessons have been learned?
- Strategies, local or national - why plans and policies are important?
- Dealing with implementation guidelines, test tools, contraints and profiles - what are the pitfalls and the benefits?
- Beyond messages and documents - what else needs to be addressed?
- Future - what will happen, what should happen and what if?
- Education - tutorials at IHIC...
The conference will inform about HL7 implementations around the world. Experiences from Germany, Great Britain, Canada and the US als well as from the the Netherlands, Turkey, Croatia, Greece, Israel, Korea, Taiwan, Japan and Finland are part of the program.
