Hack for Health calls all Hackers for a 24 hour sprint to create apps or visualizations using California's Health Data!
Health Data? What is that? and What would I want to do with it??? Well I am glad you asked!
The California Health and Human Services Agency is in charge of California’s twelve departments which oversee and promote the health of us, Californians! In August of last year, they built an online portal to host all of California’s publicly available health data. The portal is really cool and very well supported. All of the data is machine readable and there is a developer tab which encourages you to take their data and integrate it into an application, tool, or visualization that makes the data even more accessible!
