ITU will host an interoperability test event for e-health devices
and technology platforms following the guidelines
defined by Continua Health Alliance. This event will take place in Dubai, UAE, 18-20 November 2012, in conjunction with a set of other high level events, the CTO meeting, the Global Standards Symposium (GSS) and the World Telecommunication Standardization Assembly (WTSA-2012).
This Interop event will promote e-health interoperability and raise awareness of the importance of open, global, common and interoperable standards as stated at the joint ITU-WHO workshop on e-health standards and interoperability (April 2012).
A product showcase, preceded by a closed interoperability testing session, will demonstrate state-of-the-art e-health solutions to a high-powered audience,
including strategic decision-makers on the direction of the global ICT industry.
- The closed interoperability testing event will start on 18 November 2012. Participation will be restricted to engineers from organizations developing e-health solutions. Access to the venue will be
limited. All testing will be confidential, and products and equipment will be secured.
Continua Health Alliance is the international industry organization dedicated to advancing personal connected health by promoting end-to-end, plug-and-play connectivity of personal health devices and establishing industry standards for interoperability.
- An open product showcase will take place on 19 (TBC) - 20 November 2012. Exhibitors will have a unique opportunity to network with high level decision-makers ranging from governments and regulators to private-sector entities and academic institutions attending the other co-located ITU events.
These include the highest decision-making organ of the ITU Standardization Section (ITU-T) which
is held every four years. Further information can be found here.
