Health 2.0′s Boston Big Data Code-A-Thon

This weekend, the famous Health 2.0 Code-A-Thon is coming to Boston! Hosted in conjunction with Health 2.0’s Spring Fling: Matchpoint Boston, this one-day event taking place on May 11 – 12 aims to bring the best and most talented developers together to come up with new and creative applications to improve healthcare.

And that’s not all, a total of $10K in cash prize money will be distributed among three winning teams and four runner-ups (provided by the Office of the National Coordinator). The first place team will get free passes to Spring Fling: Matchpoint Boston, the industry’s preeminent deal-making and partnership forum, and sessions on growth and commercialization strategies for today’s dynamic healthcare market. First place winners will also receive an all-expense paid trip to athenahealth’s More Disruption Please conference—a conference for entrepreneurs, innovators, and investors to come together to share innovative and disruptive ideas in the HC/HIT space in Maine this September.

Health 2.0 has partnered with athenahealth, AT&T and MIT’s H@cking Medicine to connect with some of the area’s most ambitious health tech developers. The event’s theme, “big-data,” is about creating and leveraging publicly available technologies which intelligently mine, archive, present and visualize massive datasets. We are challenging developers to make sense of high volumes information in a way that will positively influence the care decisions of both providers and patients alike.

Event Dates: May 11-12, 2012
