#HumanAPI hackathon finishes with 30 health-focused apps Posted 9 months ago
Last weekend we had the privilege of being a sponsor to the launch/hackathon of Human API. The Human API is a platform that lets developers easily and securely integrate health data into their apps. It lets you aggregate all your health information from other providers/APIs and selectively access health information in groups (e.g. Activities, Blood glucose, etc). This gives developers a holistic view of a person’s health information that can be used to contribute to the progress in the medical/health industry through apps.
The 24-hackathon ended with 30 creative projects ranging from a 'Mommy' app (that constantly nags you to get into exercise mode) to something more practical like the 'Patient Intake Forms' which takes out the pain of filing out forms repeatedly. You can check out the whole list of projects here.
Here are some teams that used APIs that are listed in Mashape. Needless to say, they are our favorites! ;)
