15minIHE Connectathon FeedbackAll 

The IHE Connectathon didn't formally test anything directly relevant to this.

There was testing of the STC platform; cancer forms are available but weren't tested.

There was also work at the Plugathon exploring blockchain, IAT, etc., but they didn't get to staging directly. This could be pursued at next Plugathon at April IHE Connectathon. The plugathon is a new forum for testing new advanced technologies combining education and partnering on code development. This is a 2-day event held in middle of connectathon week. Can inform standards work.
