Smart Healthcare Live is the UK’s leading event for healthcare ICT. An insider's view of the healthcare IT market reveals hundreds of healthcare IT suppliers and an ever growing number of disconnected products, services and devices. How on earth do vendors respond to these modern day consumer driven demands and ensure that their products work seamlessly with others?

Our interactive Open Healthcare feature area illustrates the importance of embedding Open Standards into all healthcare products, services and devices. The stand will allow visitors to explore Open Standards in detail and illustrates the benefits they provide when part of a joined up system solution. IHE - Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (the international accreditation body who provide assurance that systems meet these open standards) is bringing together a number of different organisatations and systems to illustrate this capability. The stand will demonstrate the use of a range of standards including international disease and intervention coding, DICOM systems involved in radiology and image workflow, HL7 messaging for structured data exchange, OASIS web services for modern cloud applications, IEEE devices for the new expanding medical devices market, and government-driven standards for audit, costing and reporting (see the UK Department of Health Informatics Directorate's standards website).
