The IHE 2007 North America Connectathon was held in Chicago, IL January 14-19, 2007. The following are important links/lists for Connectathon 2007:

  • The Connectathon 2007 Event Site

  • The official mailing list is (to subscribe to the list send a mail to
  • OHF Connectathon 2007 Page containing Connectathon testing information for OHF supported IHE Actors and Profiles

IHE Plugins

Where can I find documentation on the IHE Actor Plugins?

The best place, currently is the javadoc from the Eclips CVS. Offical userguide infomation is availiable here, though due to our efforts in Connectathon Testing is not the most current information. It is valuable to read to get a sense of how to begin using the plugins as well as some sample code.

OHF Bridge

I'm having problems installing the bridge, what's going on?

The bridge documentations are not updated since the first beta. The bridge will be finalized close to the IHE Connectathon 2007 so we hope to have a version out soon afterwards. In the meantime we encourage everyone to use the online version. The extra benefits are that we update the bridge frequently with bug fixed and enhancements, less time for you to do installations.

Ok, I want to use the bridge. What now?

Until we'll have all the documents ready, the best thing to do is to browse the WSDL, and to send an email to eishays{at}us{.}ibm{dot}com.

I'll have a 30 min chat with you and make sure you can do at least one transaction my your own. We managed to have applications working with the bridge in less then an our.

OHF Viewer

Is the OHF Viewer/Portal open source too?

Yes, a demo is available online.

Do you really think physicians will use it?!?

It wasn't supposed to be something physicians will use. It will never be enhanced to be a full EMR/EHR application.

So why did you do it?
  • As a proof of concept
  • Helping developers who wants to see how an application might use the bridge.
  • Letting developers take code and use it as sample code.
  • You can use the bridge as a simple UI to the interoperability back end, upload, search, and download documents and patient identity.
  • To test the bridge.
The Viewer shows a list of RHIO configurations, is it something configured in the Viewer?

No, the only thing the Viewer is configured to is the URL to the bridge (the WSDL actually).

The RHIO configuration is done in the bridge and accessible by the "GetRhios" SOAP call.
