Health 2.0 Developer Challenge

Have you heard of the Health 2.0 Developer Challenge? 
The 2010 Health 2.0 Developer Challenge was 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). Initiated in March 2010, CHDI hoped to ignite innovation using newly opened government data sets. By that June meeting, several great applications had been created.

The Health 2.0 Developer Challenge is supported by HHS but is being run by Health 2.0, the company that hosts the well known Health 2.0 Conferences. The goal 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.
Here are some examples of the current challenges:

Blue Button Challenge
Challenger: Markle Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
Bring data sets from the VA and CMS to life.

Accelerating Wireless Health Adoption through a Standardized Social Network Platform
Challenger: West Wireless Health Institute
Create an application that will integrate sensor-derived data with social networks.

Improving Health Together Challenge
Challenger: keas
Design a social care plan–a plan that is designed to improve a health metric through bringing people together online and creating an environment where they share data.

Real-Time Patient-Driven Data Challenge
Challenger: Practice Fusion
Connect innovative Health 2.0 tools directly to a platform of 43,000 medical providers and 4 million patients.

Move Your App! Developer Challenge
Challenger: Snaptic and HopeLabs
What kind of app can you build to encourage people to get in motion? How can movement be just as easy and fun as checking-in or updating a status?
