Allscripts claims to serve 1 million patients. That's not entirely accurate. Roughly 15-20% of the patients cancelled. That means office admins spent roughly 150,000 hours trying to fill those cancellations, doctors lost $15-30 million in revenue, and patients were left waiting and waiting for care.Right now the office staff spends time building a waitlist in Allscripts OR using post-it notes and whatever paper is handy. Then when a patient calls, the admin rummages through the list (if they have time) and calls patients 1 by 1 to try and fill the appointment. It can take hours each time and most of the time goes unfilled.
QueueDr/DragonTouch helps office admins fill those cancelled appointments instantly.
When an appointment is cancelled in Allscripts:
1) We are notified and create a SMART waitlist based on patients who have appointments in the future and whom we believe are most likely to fill that appointment.
2) Then we text those patients in a waitlist game.
3) First patient to text back gets the appointment.
4) We then move that patient up to the cancelled slot.
5) The office admin is notified via email that the appointment is filled.
6) We also update our analytics dashboard that the office admin can share with the doctor chronicling how well they are doing filling cancelled appointments.

How might we empower people to join research studies to improve human health and treatments?
A major bottleneck in developing new treatments is the recruitment of patients for clinical studies. Often patients are unaware of clinical studies that they may be eligible for. If they are aware, it takes a lot of effort to identify the appropriate study. For the physician, with their limited time, they struggle to keep up with the latest research.
Our solution is IMPACT, a knowledge network that enables inclusive and transparent research, empowering a broader base of people to participate in research. Here, patients can learn about clinical studies in plain English and then engage in accelerating research. Based on patient data, physician's can qualify and refer patients to clinical studies that they may have been unaware of. The goal of IMPACT is to help increase patient enrollment in clinical studies thus accelerating research for better treatments and saving more lives.

GroupHub is a group management system that makes group benefits administration a breeze and empowers individuals to get the most out of their benefits. Our platform help brokers/agents with health enrollment tools, HR/group managers with benefits management tools, and individuals with personal health portals for benefits/health management. We have added PokitDoc's benefits enrollment API into our platform to automate the enrollment process and provide tracking of applications from submission to completion. With PokitDok we can unify and simplify enrollment down to a single online form for all providers (health, dental, vision, etc.). We have also used Validic's API to provide individuals access to the various health/wellness apps from within our platform. Additionally we added the ability for group managers to monitor utilization of personal health & wellness apps by employees.
As a leader in showcasing cutting-edge innovation that’s transforming health and health care, the Health 2.0 conference brings together the best minds, resources and technology for compelling panels, discussions and product demonstrations. This year’s Code-A-Thon is about building new technology tools to improve the healthcare space and lower health care costs. Developers, designers, health care professionals, biz dev and entrepreneurs will join forces for 2 days of rapid prototyping and creative health-hacking. Participants come for data, direction, diverse collaborators, delicious food, and prizes, and potentially, the beginning of a product or even their next big venture.
Don’t miss out on this great way to meet other innovators and hone your skills for a chance to be on the conference stage and win cash prizes. Winners from previous Health 2.0 Code-A-Thons have gone on to raise funding, start businesses, receive grants, pilot their technologies and even acquire customers.
Technology is advancing health care every day and now you can be a part of the movement. For this year’s Health 2.0 San Francisco Code-A-Thon, we have two exciting API tracks that you can participate in.
Over the past decade, U.S. Healthcare expenditures have grown to become approximately 17% of GDP. One of the most efficient ways to attack this growing problem is through the use of innovative Electronic Health Records (EHRs). Allscripts, an EHR leader, has 1 out of every 3 physicians in the U.S. using their software every day for clinical and administrative functions.
This track invites you to make a real difference in healthcare by developing new applications to extend and enhance Allscripts EHRs and Practice Management systems. Possible submission examples include applications that save clinical staff's time, focus on practice specialty, meet Meaningful Use requirements, support new device or technology connectivity to the EHR and/or improve patients engagement and education.
All Code-A-Thon participants can explore a possible partnership with Allscripts leading to a revenue-generating business. Allscripts is doing this today with more than 100 developers, and together they're providing innovative tools for their clients that are creating real outcomes for their patients and their business.

The HAPI platform allows third party applications to integrate with and participate in an ever expanding health data ecosystem by providing access to over 1,600 health data types for each user. Through HAPI, your users can log measurements, symptoms, medications, and events across more than 30 different health conditions, nutrition, and fitness. Application using the HAPI Platform can enjoy seamless integration with FitBit, Withings, Jawbone and others! Connect to hAPI here
Validic REST API
The Validic API is designed to enable a simple, standardized connection between healthcare companies and mobile health and wellness apps and devices. Validic captures a user's fitness activities and health measurements over time. Each activity and measurement contains a timestamp and a note about which integration was used to track the activity. A core aspect of the Validic API is to vastly increase the speed of integration between mHealth app developers and healthcare business. Additionally, Validic provides critical enterprise features needed by healthcare companies that are not usually provided as a core service by app developers, such as ease of connectivity, HIPAA/PHI compliance and standardized endpoints.
