Sacramento Business Journal

A health-care related hacakthon this weekend already has attracted about 100 participants. That’ a lot of people for a hackathon in Sacramento, but this one is offering some serious cash prizes.

The Health 2.0 Developer Challenge at UC Davis Medical Center seeks to find innovative uses for the massive public data sets available at the California Health and Human Services Open Data Portal.

The data portal includes workforce statistics, health care information, environmental studies, demographics and all kinds of other information from various studies, research papers and just compiled facts.
