ENTRIES TAGGED "Health and Human Services"
A major bash by the Department of Health and Human Services and the Institute of Medicine–together with the NIH, EPA, and others–drew hundreds of people yesterday in Washington, DC to discuss the use of government data in health care. Some of the interesting apps on display, and a look toward next steps.
Healthcare.gov from the Department of Health and Human Services
provides an example of the goals behind opening up data–not data for
data's sake, but data as a tool people can use to get more involved in
policy, have an impact on civic life, and hopefully make their own
lives better along the way.
