Our Health Data Initiative Datapalooza experience was really valuable. We learned a lot about open data, innovative apps and APIs, and creative ways to incent the crowd to solve big problems. Here are Datapalooza observations from Dave Crumbacher, Barry Crist and me.
- It was our first time seeing Todd Park speak in person – his positive energy,enthusiasm and “do it” spirit sets him apart.
- APIs are the way to enable app development and unleash data. It was good to learn of the National Library of Medicine APIs, the Aetna CarePass Developer Portal and more.
