HealthCamp Brings Important Players to the Conversation

“Our mission is to assist the President in harnessing the power and potential of technology, data and innovation to transform the nation’s economy and improve the lives of everyday Americans.” – Aneesh Chopra, U.S. CTO

As one of the organizers for HealthCamp SFBay I’m pretty proud to say that this year is going to be even better than last year’s event! Not only have we secured Sprint as a major sponsor, finessed the scheduling and will provide more robust reporting, but we have also had both Annesh Chopra, US CTO, and Todd Park, HHS CTO commit to coming and speaking at the event!

Their involvement stems from our partnership with the Health 2.0 organization and agreement to co-host the Health 2.0 Developer Challenge (strongly supported by both Aneesh and Todd). What HealthCamp hopes to provide the DevChallenge is a collaborative venue for people to come up with new ideas for challenges (see current challenges), to form teams to take on existing challenges, and to share ideas on how best to tackle some of the issues involved with solving complex health related problems that involve private health data.

Both Aneesh and Todd are currently dealing with many similar challenges as they strive to come up with technology and policy recommendations that will meet strict requirements on many fronts from personal privacy to political agendas. It will be interesting to see what they have to say, come join us on October 6 at the Kaiser Permanente Garfield Innovation Center! Register here
