Indivo Users' Conference: Slides and Recap

Slides from the 2012 Indivo X Users’ Conference are now available! We’ve hosted them on slideshare: check them out.

The June 18th presentations at this year’s Indivo X Users’ Conference covered a number of topics, including a keynote from Farzad Mostashari, National Coordinator of HIT, ONC; Indivo–SMART integration by Daniel Haas, Indivo Lead Architect; the SMART API by Nikolai Schwertner, Senior SMART Developer; Indivo–i2b2 integration by Shawn Murphy, Partners HealthCare; Indivo iOS framework by Pascal Pfiffner, Children’s Hospital Informatics Program; and lightning talks from the MIT Media Lab, Novartis, Childhood Arthritis & Rheumatology Research Alliance, and MuleSoft. Ken Mandl also premiered the new Indivo Film, an animated “story of what’s to come” in Health IT, voiced by Amy Madigan.

A key topic at this year’s Indivo Users’ Conference was the release of version 2.0, which provides “deep integration with the SMART data models and API.” In other words, Indivo is now a full-fledged SMART container. Learn more about what this means.

On Tuesday, June 19th, Daniel Haas led a day-long hackathon. The group spent the morning brainstorming, then broke into smaller groups and coded for the rest of the day. The Indivo team gave a few tutorials, including ‘How to build an app’ in Ruby, Python, and Objective-C, as well as a look at the new pluggable data-models feature released in Indivo version 2.0. By the end of the day, groups had developed prototypes for several interesting projects, including an app that offerred contextualized search based on the contents of a patient’s Indivo record, and integration with http://www.bodytrack.org/ to display Indivo labs data in time-series alongside data from several other open API inputs (such as Fitbit and Zeo devices).
