Testing Tools and Integration Projects

The HIMSS and RSNA commissioned the Electronic Radiology Lab to develop the set of software tools used in the IHE testing process. IHE Connectathon

The MESA tools are designed for use by participating companies in implementing IHE capabilities in their systems and preparing for Connectathon, the annual weeklong interoperability testing event managed by the ERL. Their purpose is to provide communication partners, test data and test plans to allow organizations to provide a baseline level of testing as they implement the IHE Technical Framework. These tools are made available to participants during the period of an IHE demonstration year and are then released into the public domain at the end of that cycle.

The latest version of the MESA (Medical Enterprise Simulators and Analyzer) Test Tools can be found at http://ihedoc.wustl.edu.
