SAN FRANCISCO, April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Health 2.0 announced the keynote lineup for its first Health:Refactored conference. This is the only conference dedicated to equipping and guiding tech developers and designers on how to navigate the opportunities rapidly developing throughout health care. Health:Refactored will showcase accomplished and notable technical professionals that honed their skills in the trenches; technologists who live, breathe and eat code, APIs, and SDKs and design gurus who lunch on 3D and typography. Health:Refactored's luminaries include:
- Silicon Valley serial entrepreneur turned CTO of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Bryan Sivak will share the government's ambitious plan to attract entrepreneurs and drive health tech innovation through widespread data access.
- Silicon Valley entrepreneur, philanthropist and angel investor Esther Dyson will discuss the intersection of health care, big data and tech innovation.
- Aza Raskin, VP of Jawbone, and former creative lead for Firefox and one of Fast Company's top 40 most influential designers, will be addressing attendees on how to design great health care apps (that don't suck).
Health:Refactored's highly curated agenda is packed to provide core tools, resources, information and real-world guidance to serve as a bridge for developers and designers to dive into creating next-generation apps, products and services that cater to this trillion dollar market. The conference includes a distinctive mix of interactive sessions that are unfiltered and designed to encourage attendees to roll up their sleeves and turn on their problem solving skills.
- API Hack Fest: Hack into health care during Health:Refactored's "API Lightning Workshops." Developers can leverage APIs from a broad range of companies, many of which will unveil and open up their APIs for the first time. Sample APIs include: personal health information with Microsoft HealthVault, speech and voice recognition API from Nuance, and rich clinical data API from the NYC eHealth Collaborative API.
- "Open Mic Soapbox" is a designated place where attendees can rant and rave and engage with each other in freeform brainstorming to collaborate on how to solve big problems still unaddressed in health care. "Solving Stations" will be open throughout the conference where attendees can drop by to meet up with experts who will be available to help developers and designers navigate their toughest challenges.
"We're thrilled to be hosting this distinct conference that for the first time brings together health care trailblazers and experts to lay a roadmap for the developers and designers. These communities will play a key role behind the health care transformation that is well underway. Health:Refactored is the bridge to help them discover how to capitalize on this goldmine of opportunities," noted Indu Subaiya, Co-Chairman & CEO of Health 2.0.
