Marymount University will host the second day of the CONNECT Code-A-Thon on Thursday, November 8. This event brings together IT and health professionals and students to collaborate on projects that encourage the development of creative technology solutions related to CONNECT.
CONNECT is an open source software solution that supports health information exchange – both locally and at the national level. CONNECT uses Nationwide Health Information Network standards and governance to make sure that health information exchanges are compatible with other exchanges being set up throughout the country.
This software solution was initially developed by federal agencies to support their health-related missions, but it is now available to all organizations and can be used to help set up health information exchanges and share data using nationally-recognized interoperability standards.
