National Day of Civic Hacking Burlington

On June 1-2, 2013, Burlington hosted its first-ever "Day of Civic Hacking," part of a national event that saw 83 cities host events involving thousands of people. The challenge? Develop digital tools to help make government and non-profits work better. And, have fun, of course! #hackforchange

NetSquared's Burlington organizer Amanda Levinson was there tweeting, photographing and participating.

Digital technologies have fundamentally transformed the entire health care ecosystem. Surgeon-controlled robots perform surgeries from other cities, Electronic Medical Records store our health histories, and we use the internet to seek information about everything from the side-effects of medications to how our physician is rated by other patients.  In the U.S. alone, it's estimated that 35% of adults have gone online to get information about a medical condition, and one-fifth of smartphone owners have health apps.
