The final HITCH roadmap on the future of Interoperabilty Testing is online, covering eHealth testing certification and labeling processes, quality management and tools!

About Hitch

HITCH is about developing a vision of how interoperability and conformance testing of eHealth systems should be organized in Europe and beyond. This ranges from the analysis of eHealth testing tools, over quality management in interoperability testing, to complete certification and quality labeling scenarios.

This project is partially funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme.

For the purpose of a presentation about IHE and the activities of IHE Europe, I have made this map of the European Connectathon since IHE-Europe started in  2001.

The observation is that we have been pretty fair to every one.

  • Red locations are Kudu managed connectathon,
  • Green locations are Connectathon where Gazelle was used.
  • Red one are the planned connectathon...

We are moving east !

We have now a new simulator available for the Laboratory domain. This simulator can play the role of the Code Set Master actor or the role of the Code Set Consumer.

This simulator as the other simulators of the Gazelle test plateform is bound to the HL7v2 Message validation service and allows users to test their implementation of the LCSD profile in their applications.

Access the LCSD Simulator


The LCSD Simulator is an experimental system. INRIA nor IHE-Europe assumes no responsibility whatsoever for its use by other parties, and makes no guarantees, expressed or implied, about its quality, reliability, or any other characteristic. We would appreciate acknowledgement if the software is used.


We are thankfull to Eric Perez and Filip Migom for their support and providing us with some samples.

Gazelle testing platform is now enriched with a new simulator dedicated to the PAM profile. A first beta release of the PDS part (which is helpfull to test  PDC actors in the context of the PAM profile) is now online at Others actors will be developed in the next months...
