Health information technology and applications are being developed very quickly these days. Large academic hospitals in Boston have taken notice, and are developing their own systems to promote innovation in medicine and healthcare today. Most recently, Brigham and Women’s Hospital has launched its very own Innovation Hub (iHub). As a launch of the BWH iHub, BWH in conjunction with MIT H@cking Medicine hosted their first hackathon the weekend of September 20-22, 2013.
MedTech Boston sat down with Adam Landman, MD, a BWH emergency physician and Chief Medical Information Officer for Health Information Innovation and Integration. He is also a key member of the Core Committee for the BWH iHub.
