This month, Open mHealth ('s David Haddad and John Jenkins will talk about why building an open software architecture is necessary for telling a data-driven patient story as well as how to use Open mHealth for your next digital health app.

This an exciting opportunity to talk to the people building one of the few truly open source projects in the healthcare space, so everyone with an interest in mobile health is encouraged to attend, ask questions, and help keep the momentum for open source mHealth going!

About Health Dev Hours

Health Dev Hours is a casual opportunity for programmers working in health to come, talk shop, get code help, or just hack in the presence of other health devs.

Come to Health Dev Hours if you...

Want some help with code you've been working on.

Would like to get feedback on or share a health hack that you are coding yourself.

Hope to discuss unique health hacking problems (like HIPAA compliance or interoperability) or standards (HL7, Blue Button, etc.) with others who have already suffered through them.
