Connecting Health Records for Greater Engagement, Empowerment, & Transparency
The convergence of data, digital experience, and technology has transformed healthcare, uncovering hidden insights, improving outcomes, enabling faster care, lowering operating costs, and giving both patients and providers tools to better manage health. Yet many of these advancements are compartmentalized, separating care teams, patient experience, pharmacies, and more.
Now, with proposed changes to Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resource (FHIR) APIs, the ecosystem is ripe to move beyond the electronic health record to a connected health record. The CDHI Challenge at HLTH conference hackathon in Las Vegas from October 25 – 27 invites developers to imagine connected healthcare applications that enable better patient engagement and empowerment, cost transparency, chronic disease management, and virtual care models, all utilizing a more comprehensive set of patient health data.
You will have 36 hours to collaborate and create an impactful solution. Will you develop an app that helps patients and shared care teams better manage chronic conditions? Create patient portal modules that help patients find the most affordable prescription options or remind them labs, imaging, or other tests? How about a way to bring speed and transparency to the referral process?
One lucky winner will be awarded a six-month remote engagement* with the Center for Digital Health Innovation (CDHI) at UCSF, a world leader in bringing bold ideas to healthcare settings globally. We pair the brightest minds at UCSF with technology leaders to advance digital health innovations at any stage of the process from “bench to bedside.” The winner will have access to the CDHI team team and resources to further develop their idea for potential commercialization.
