ANTILOPE drives eHealth interoperability in Europe and beyond. Between 2013 and 2015 key national and international organisations will work together to select and define eHealth standards and specifications. They will create, validate and disseminate a common approach for testing and certification of eHealth solutions and services in Europe.  Read more

Antilope calls for development of eHealth testing tools

Brussels, 12 March 2014  – Today the EU-funded Antilope project published a request for proposals (RFP) for developing testing tools that further enhance testing for the profiles and standards needed to implement the use cases identified in the European eHealth Interoperability Framework (eEIF).  These new testing tools will serve to further advance eHealth interoperability in Europe.

The Antilope project has published a list of testing tools that are used to ensure interoperability with existing IT infrastructures, services and devices.  Gaps remain where existing testing tools could be improved or new tools could be built.  This request for proposals is a call for developers and organisations to address these shortcomings.  Tools that will be freely available and are based on open source code will be preferred.

“These testing tools will lead to improved interoperability of products that implement profiles and underlying standards, and they will facilitate the adoption of the eEIF within European countries and between them,” says Karima Bourquard, technical coordinator of the Antilope project. “We believe in open source testing tools because they allow for better maintenance, error correction, and further improvement.”

Interested parties are invited to communicate their intent so Antilope can coordinate efforts and minimise duplications of efforts.  The tools will be validated in the autumn of 2014 and will be demonstrated at the final Antilope conference and the European Connectathon in April 2015 in Luxembourg.
