Health 2.0 Developer Challenge, launched on June 2nd, 2010 at the Community Health Data Initiative (CHDI) meeting at the IOM, with support from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), hoped to ignite innovation using newly opened government datasets.
The goal now is to continue the excitement of CHDI and to bring the Health 2.0 Community together for rapid application development. There’ll also be more government data and privately contributed health data for developers and teams to work with.
I’ve committed to BillTrack50 as my way to try to make a difference. I have a deeply held belief that the world is full of smart people with great ideas (and also funny people, but that’s a different post). The better we can inform smart people about what the state legislatures are doing, and hook their great ideas into the process, the better off we all will be.
To me, getting people more involved in the political process, beyond simply voting every four years, is work that matters.
