The OHIE 19 Hackonnect-a-thon is scheduled for Friday 8th November at this year’s OpenHIE Community Meeting, and we’re looking to the community to bring their technical strengths and priority use cases to the table.
**- Do you have an OpenHIE component tool/solution that you can make available for participants at the event?
- Do you have a challenge you’d like to see addressed at this year’s Hackonnect-a-thon?
If so, please add this directly to the Hackonnect-a-thon wiki page, or alternately, let me know here and I’ll add it in.**
See here for an idea of some of the tools and challenges that were addressed at last year’s Hackonnect-a-thon.
What is the OpenHIE Hackonnect-a-thon? -
The OpenHIE Hackonnect-a-thon is a merger of two exciting types of meetings. This is a technical space for software teams and architects to engage and get their “hands-in” or “on” OpenHIE itself and see it materialised. Combining the principles of a connectathon and a hackathon we are excited to provide a space for teams to connect their existing tools to OpenHIE workflows and use-cases as well as give the community an opportunity to propose low hanging fruit use cases for the groups to work on. Recognising that many attendees may be new to OpenHIE there is no better way than actively engaging in designing, developing, configuring, implementing and connecting to an OpenHIE architecture to learn the fundamentals and build the relationships that you will need going forward.
The attendees of the connect-a-thon are aiming to:
- Connect existing tools to OpenHIE foundational registries
- Learn how to implement workflows within their tools
- Jointly work together to implement common use-cases within an OpenHIE architecture
- Self-organise into learning sessions and create breakaway groups to discuss topics / show ideas
