Join Hyperledger members, staff and developers at Blockchain in Healthcare Code-A-Thon
March 14 @ 8:00 am – March 15 @ 5:00 pm EDT at the Rafik B. Hariri Building located on the Georgetown University Campus
37th and O Streets, NW Washington DC, DC 20057 United States
Code-a-Thon contestants will use open source distributed ledger technology and health-specific standards to address one of the following health IT Tracks:
- Identity Management and APIs: Demonstrate the use of blockchain to support the identity management requirements for APIs for both provider-to-provider and patient-mediated exchange.
- Metadata Tagging and Policy Expression: Demonstrate the use of blockchain for security metadata and tagging to manage access, provide auditing and provenance information.
- Data Aggregation and Linkage: Use of blockchain technology to securely aggregate, link and share patient data to the destination of their choice.
Our top-level mission with the Hyperledger Healthcare WG is to identify specific opportunities for open source software development projects we could host here at Hyperledger, projects which could help the industry move even more quickly on use cases with high potential.
Those efforts could be built upon existing Hyperledger code bases, but are not limited to that; what's important is being able to get started quickly, and have something tangible that can progress from proof of concept to pilot to eventual production, if all the right criteria are met. To get started, we need to talk openly and frankly about what can be done, and what each of us can commit to contributing towards it.Brian BehlendorfHyperledger Project Executive Director
