Rochester Healthcare Data Hack-A-Thon

Join University faculty, students, staff, and other “techies” to collaborate intensively on solutions to current healthcare related data problems. As a follow-up to the ROCHD3 event last fall, this event will try to solve some of the obstacles discussed, as Hackers will form teams to compete in solutions to specific problems on the following data sets:
  • Hospital readmissions
  • Identification of physician prescribing patterns
  • Identification / visualization of physician teaming practices

This 2 1/2 day event will be a fun and exciting educational experience generating potentially high-impact solutions to problems that both public and private researchers are currently facing.
