    The second annual National Health Equity Hackathon will focus on creating data-driven solutions for the underserved healthcare population through the use of 211 data provided by United Way. The hackathon will be November 8-10 at the United Way of Greater Houston and includes sponsorship support from the American Hospital Association, January Advisors and CareSet Systems, with additional support from Health Tech 4 Medicaid.

    Examples of people who do not have equal access or quality of care include:
    • the economically disadvantaged
    • those affected by racial or gender disparities
    • infants and children
    • people living with chronic illness
    • the frail elderly
    • the homeless


    Using 211 datasets, this weekend hackathon will gather multiple tech disciplines around a common goal of reducing health disparities. Attendees will self-select to a team with diverse perspectives. Local and nationally-acclaimed mentors and database experts will be accessible throughout the event.

    Lunch and dinner will be provided each day of the event. Parking is included.
