The next CONNECT Code-A-Thon is less than two weeks away! You can register now for this quarterly event designed to encourage collaboration around the development of this nationwide health IT initiative at http://www.connectopensource.
Marymount University will host this event on November 7 & 8, 2012, 8:00AM-5:00PM ET on both days, at their Ballston Center location in Arlington, VA. It is designed for IT and health professionals, and students, to collaborate on projects that encourage the development of creative technology solutions related to CONNECT.
The CONNECT Code-A-Thon lasts for two days and will include presentations by Federal Health Architecture Director Dr. Lauren Thompson and Dr. Diane Murphy, Chair of the IT department and an Associate Professor of IT at Marymount University.
Attendees at the Code-A-Thon will also enjoy short plenary sessions on various topics related to CONNECT, and how to effectively implement it in current health IT environments. Experts will be on hand to provide details about their experiences with CONNECT in the open source community, and program personnel will provide insight into current and future solutions. Attendees will have the opportunity to work in groups with peers on projects they are interested in with little to no restrictions on direction or goal of the programming.
The agenda for the CONNECT Code-A-Thon is being built by those attending the event. Please feel free to start contributing to the agenda now using the CONNECT Code-A-Thon Hackpad website.
