Open mHealth is not only a free and open source platform to share and integrate digital health data, it’s also a community of developers, clinical data scientists, and researchers.

Many of you have asked for Meetup groups to talk about all things Open mHealth.

You asked. We listened.

We’re proud to announce two new meetups in NYC and San Francisco (and one in Europe very shortly).

With all the recent buzz about Apple’s ResearchKit, what better way to kick-off our communities and series than to discuss the impact of ResearchKit on the clinical research community as well as its impact on Open mHealth.

Below are some details about each event.

March 19 – NYC – 6:30-8:30pm ET

We’ll be joined by Dr. Dan Stein who’ll discuss a bit about what ResearchKit means for clinical research and what tech can do for research more broadly. We’ll hear from co-founder of Open mHealth and professor of computer science at Cornell Tech, Deborah Estrin as she talks about the potential for Researchkit to work alongside other platforms.

March 23 – San Francisco – 6:30-8:30pm PT

We’ll be joined by Dr. Mike McConnell (one of the core partners in building the MyHeart Counts app and clinical advisor at Open mHealth) and co-founder Ida Sim as they discuss the potential of ResearchKit for clinical research and what the Open mHealth community can do make it better.

If for some reason you can’t make the events this week (NYC) or the next (SF) but think someone should attend, please share this post.

All are welcome.
