Software developers will convene Sept. 21-22 in Rochester, Minn., to fix bugs, improve code, enhance documentation and make other improvements to the application.
CONNECT is downloadable networking software with three components:
Gateway, which implements nationwide health information network specifications for secure data exchange over the Internet Enterprise Service Platform, which enables an organization to plug practice management and electronic health records systems into a framework to communicate with the Gateway Universal Client Framework, a platform to develop end-user applications that support meaningful use in lieu of a full-blown EHR.
CONNECT includes one or more open source applications for each of the components, plus some private vendor tools such as IBM/Initiate Systems' master patient index software.
Information on the Code-A-Thon and CONNECT is available here.
