Massachusetts Datapalooza

Massachusetts is creating an ecosystem which enables providers, patients, and payers to exchange health information with patient consent at low cost using Meaningful Use Stage 2 standards.   It goes live October 15.

We're also encouraging innovative companies to create applications that will empower healthcare stakeholders using this newly freed data.    Our upcoming Healthmart Conference and Datapalooza will showcase these efforts.

The HealthMart Conference, Trade Show, and Datapalooza will be held on October 2-3 at the DCU Center in Worcester.  Day one will address the topics of EHR deployment, accountable care, mobile health, and analytics.  Day two will be the Datapalooza, which is a competition among innovators to develop apps and products using federal health data, and I will be one of the judges.  Attendee, Datapalooza contestant, and vendor registration are now open at the Massachusetts Health Data Consortium's website.  Contestant registration is now free!
