HealthShare @ NYC Columbia Code-a-Thon

HealthShare creators Jon Jia, Don Yu, and Aneem Talukder took home a $500 third-place prize at Health 2.0’s Health, Hacking and Big Data Code-a-Thon at Columbia University.

HealthShares aims to make it easy for hospitals to share their resources (ie, expensive equipment, surplus medical supplies, extra beds, etc.) with one another. It acts as a central hub through which hospitals can put up their available resources & usage times and view what other hospitals have available, also allowing hospitals to request supplies and resources in emergency situations.
