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
