I recently participated in two hackathons in Boston.
Last weekend, I was on the InforMED team that won second prize at the MIT H@ckfest for the IT CIO track for a system that allows first responders to scan a tag (RFID, QR Code, etc.) to get a facesheet of critical care information for a patient. This project also won a $1000 prize from Care Innovations, an Intel GE joint venture.
In January, I was a member of the team that won the “Most Likely to Succeed” award at the MedStart Hackathon at Tufts Medical School. Our four-member team (Bryan Bordeaux, Michelle Qi, Elaine Wu, and I) produced a tool that helps a primary care physician by listing recommended screenings for patients.
