President and Founder of BuildingLink, but with a long-standing interest in various ideas related to Personal Medical Record functionality and how it can be done right - not the way that Google Health did it!
Developers create solutions to problems in complex systems. "Health" involves an unbelievably complex system (the body), tangled up with an unfathomably real abstraction (the mind) and wrapped in a morass of business, government, and good intentions so labyrinthine in nature that it would make Kafka cry. If you love exploring elegant fixes to problems of mind-shattering difficulty in a collaborative environment then Health Devs is the group for you.
Things health devs do:
* Show off hacks we've built that transform health and healthcare
* Share information on the nuts and bolts of developing healthcare technologies -- everything from hacking healthcare's many non-standard "standards" to building great UI for doctors to integrating with EHRs
* Talk about the core problems of plaguing healthcare, and how to hack them
