Program of IHIC 2019 will focus on presentation of large and medium scale implementation eHealth projects with international, national or regional scope. Invited speakers will explain how project specific requirements were realized by development of interoperability specifications (implementation guides) based on global standards and how data validation and system testing processes were organized. The tools supporting such processes as well as specification development and implementation will be presented. Several seminars will be delivered by top global experts in healthcare interoperability.
