White House "Big Healthcare Data" Hackathon

Come join a team at the White House Sponsored “Blue Button Initiative” hackathon at Tufts Medical School next week. The government is making an enormous database of de-identified healthcare records available for anyone who signs up and teams will compete to come up with the best uses of this data set. There's a "training session" for engineers starting at 1PM at MIT but the actual hackathon starts at 5PM at Tufts Medical Center. See the link below for details. http://tuftsmedstart.com/

    Does anyone know where is the place to meet for the "training session" for engineers starting at 1PM at MIT?

    I just got a rejection letter from tuftdmedstart, saying that "We are sorry to say that we are unable to accept you to this year's MedStart competition. Many great applicants applied, but due to a limited number of spaces in our competition, we were unable to accept everyone." This is a disappointment for me and my team.
    You indicated that the government is making an enormous database of de-identified healthcare records available for anyone who signs up and teams will compete to come up with the best uses of this data set. We are very confused by the fact that your invitation seems to indicate that this competition is for everyone. Can you clarify the attendance availability of this invitation? Furthermore, where is the place to meet for the "training session" for engineers starting at 1PM at MIT?

    Learn more about the upcoming hackathon at MedTech Boston and listen to how veterans are already using innovation from the Blue Button in their lives! Maybe it'll prompt ideas for the hack! http://medtechboston.com/this-w...­
