The Health 2.0 Developer Challenge is an initiative designed to stimulate new innovative application development and data use. The challenge was launched on June 2, 2010 at the Community Health Data Initiative (CHDI) meeting at the IOM, with support from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The goal of the challenge is to continue the excitement of CHDI and to bring the Health 2.0 Community together for rapid application development, both online and in several physical code-a-thons.
