The goal of the Plugathon is to provide vendors/startups developing healthcare devices and/or apps with a two-day educational approach on interoperability design and testing. This will help them to enable their products to interoperate with other systems and validate their interoperability in order to increase the value of their solutions on the market.

The Plugathon is organized over two-days and will include sessions on international eHealth profiles & standards that will be used / illustrated during hands-on workshops and in interoperability testing. 

“We were delighted with the feedback from vendors, users and academics and it was a huge success from many perspectives. The educational sessions were well-attended and that translated into enthusiastic testing sessions with the mHealth community. We more than achieved our objectives and created a platform to help identify new trends/needs and look forward to building on this for future events.” - Mauro Zanardini, Venice 2018 Plugathon coordinator
